About the Society

We publish a bi-monthly magazine, 'The Mancunian' which contains interesting and informative articles submitted mainly by members covering a variety of interests such as the history of locomotives  and lines, current events as well as personal reminiscences of the past.  The success of this magazine is reflected by the number of 'out of town members' that we have and the lively correspondence it generates.

An edition of our magazine (September 2022) can be viewed here.

The Society is the proud owner of an extensive and varied collection of books, photographs, and archive material covering locomotives, rolling stock, architecture and signalling. In addition the library has a comprehensive collection of timetables and publications from other societies. All of these are available to members.

If you would like to join then please write (including a S.A.E.) to our Membership Secretary for more information.
