SRPS Events for 2019

Each year since its formation the Scottish Railway Preservation Society has held a series of winter meetings. This winter’s meetings are at two venues : Edinburgh Motherwell

The meetings cover diverse topics, from historical reviews of Scotland’s railway heritage and studies of the contemporary railway scene, to examining practices abroad. The broad range of topics are bound to appeal no matter what anyone’s individual interest, and are highly recommended to anybody in the area.

Admission to all meetings is free and is open to all, whether members or non-members.

A collection is made to help defray room hire costs.
