The 8E Railway Association

About the Club

The 8E Railway Association was formed in July 1981 by a group of local railway enthusiasts who had become involved in servicing steam locomotives that were being stabled at the former Northwich steam shed around that time.

Today the Association is more of a social organisation with aims of a more general railway nature, in essence promoting railways and railway preservation.
