The Swiss Railways Society was formed in 1980 for the purpose of bringing together those interested on Swiss Railways, but over the years has attracted those with a liking for other forms of transportation such as trams, boats cable cars and funicular railways. Our numbers include many whose technical knowledge is slight but whose love of Switzerland and its railways bring them comfortably into contact with the historically and technically minded member as well as model makers at all levels of experience.
The Society has good relations with Swiss Tourism in London and has contacts with railway companies in Switzerland. Links are continually being strengthened and in 1992 the Society had the unique distinction of being voted an associate member of the S.V.E.A. This body is the umbrella organisation of model railway clubs in Switzerland, and publishes the “Eisenbahn Amateur” Magazine.
Although most of our members live in the UK, membership is open to all and we have many who have joined from Europe, Australasia and North America.
