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.

Coronavirus Update

Members: Since the printers have returned to work, the July Points and Journal should arrive as normal early July (Points will be in the EAG Reading room then).

As the Coronavirus situation continues to change and guidelines for at risk groups vary and are imprecise, the M&SC remains closed and other activities remain suspended through July. Area group and other meetings are now unlikely until the Autumn at the earliest. The Trustees will continue to review the public recommendations and then decide on a date for the postponed AGM.  Please see the ’What’s On’ page for any new schedule.

Trading of HMRS products via the website: Until the M&SC is re-opened we can only hold any website orders until we are able to restart deliveries and reduce the backlog. Although the website still processes orders correctly we cannot deliver them so please do not order - you will have to wait for delivery an unpredictable length of time. Your account will be charged at checkout. No postal or phone orders will be taken until the M&SC re-opens.

We are sorry for any inconvenience but of course this is still necessary for us all.
