German Railway Society

About The Society


The German Railway Society is a friendly railway society for enthusiasts of German railways, and aims is to encourage interest in all its aspects. It was established in 1981 to generate interest in German railways, to provide an English language source of information, and to encourage modelling. All interests are catered for, including the operational railway as well as modellers of various scales.

The Society hosts its own model railway exhibition, Globalrail, usually held in Didcot, Oxfordshire.
