Welcome to the website of The German Railway Society, a Company Limited by Guarantee, we are a friendly railway society for enthusiasts of German Railways. Our Society was founded in 1981. We have members throughout the World. Our aim is to encourage interest in all aspects of German railways. Whilst we do not intend to duplicate the worthy work done by other societies, it is impossible to separate many of the aspects of the German from other European systems. We welcome all interests, prototype enthusiasts and modellers irrespective of scale and make of model railway. We are a national society with local groups who hold meetings in various areas of Britain.


We are currently seeking a Society Products Officer. The role includes maintaining stock levels of all Society products and arranging for volunteers from the membership to run the Society's stand at exhibitions. The Society Products Officer is a member of the Society's Committee which meets three times a year in London.If you are a Society member and are interested in taking on this role please contact the Secretary, memsec@grs-uk.org.

We are delighted to announce that GLOBALRAIL 2018, our annual model railway exhibition, will take place at Didcot Civic Hall on Sunday 29 April 2018. Click here for more details.
