Bishop’s Castle Railway Society

About the Club

The Bishop’s Castle Railway Society was established in 1989 with the aim of gathering information and recording existing artefacts, for possible display, in respect of the Craven Arms to Bishop’s Castle railway, that closed in 1935. Its interests have since expanded to include general railway interests and modelling.
