The Industrial Railway Society caters for enthusiasts interested in privately owned locomotives and railways at home and overseas.
Full members receive four times a year the Industrial Railway Record, a profusely illustrated magazine; a bi-monthly Bulletin containing topical news; access to a well-stocked library and archive; visits to and rail tours of industrial railway systems; a book sales service, many Society publications being available at discounted prices when first published; locomotive information service from the Society’s team of records officers; and a photographic sales service. In addition, members will receive periodic amendments to the Society Handbooks covering the United Kingdom and overseas.
Basic members do not receive the Industrial Railway Record, but all other benefits are the same.
Prices are inclusive of delivery charges (and VAT if applicable).
If you are a new member joining between 1st January and 30th June your memberhip will be backdated to 1st January and you will be offered free copies of two of our UK books, Industrial Wagons and Ex-BR Diesels in Industry (8th Edition) and/or one of our Overseas books - either Benelux, GE4 (Baden Württemberg) or Western France. Alternatively, if you join after 30th June your membership will run through to the end of 2023.
