Welcome to the Railway Study Association
The Railway Study Association provides a forum for the exchange of experience, knowledge and opinion on issues relating to all aspects of the railway industry.

Our membership is drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and expertise, embracing operations, engineering, business planning, project management, marketing and consultancy - to mention but a few.

We seek to achieve our objectives by arranging a variety of meetings, ranging from formal lectures followed by a question and answer session to seminars, in which higher levels of personal participation are possible.

There are also visits to railway sites and installations and study tours, both in the UK and abroad. Forthcoming events are featured on other sections of this website.

An important feature of all our activities is the opportunity they offer participants to meet and share experiences with other members of the railway community. This informal networking is one of the most effective ways to drive personal and professional development.
The Railway Study Association offers both individual and corporate membership packages, details of which can be found here. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
