About us

 

The Derby Railway Engineering Society was founded in 1908 to serve the needs of the railway engineering community in Derby, England, a prestigious function which it continues to this day. The present Society keeps members informed by means of lectures and visits. These enable a free interchange of ideas through lively social contact, providing opportunities for business "networking" or simply keeping in touch with friends in the industry. By getting involved with our activities, members also get the opportunity to develop professionally. Our membership includes those who are active in the railway engineering industry today, older members who formerly worked in the industry and those who simply have a keen interest in railways from an engineering perspective.

Most of our meetings are open to members and non-members alike, although we do encourage interested parties to apply for membership which gives a number of advantages. The Derby Railway Engineering Society was founded in 1908 to serve the needs of the railway engineering community in Derby, England, a prestigious function which it continues to this day.
