About the HMRS

For over 60 years, the HMRS has been helping to record and preserve material on the history of Britain’s railways from the early 1800s up to the present day, and more importantly to make that material available to modellers, researchers and students. Today it is a thriving Society and educational charity, offering benefits for all who seek to understand how railways have contributed to British geography, industry and culture. We collaborate with railway line societies and public museums to further the growth of historical knowledge. We supply information to model manufacturers both small and international.
