The Surrey Branch of the RCTS organizes a comprehensive programme of indoor meetings and outside visits for railway enthusiasts in the West Surrey area. Over the winter period between September and May, monthly meetings are held in Woking with invited speakers giving talks and digital or slide presentations on a range of railway subjects. Areas of interest include modern operations, overseas railways, the heritage scene and memories of the days of steam. Senior railway executives are invited regularly to give their views on aspects of present and future railway operation. At each meeting there is also a comprehensive sales table with a range of RCTS publications, second hand books, photographs and other railway items available for purchase.

The branch programme card can be downloaded here.

Our branch has stands at various local model railway exhibitions during the year, where we promote the Society, sell RCTS Publications and donated books. These are listed above. If you are able to come along and help on the stand then please call Andy Davies, our Exhibitions Officer, on 01932 855015 or e-mail Andy Davies
