In October 2024 a new show, the Convention of European Railway Societies Exhibition, takes place. This is a joint effort: the Austrian Railway Group, the Swiss Railways Society, the Italian Railway Society, the French Railway Society, the German Railway Society and the Scandinavian Railway Society will each have a stand and present a layout. The European Railways Association (ERA) will have a bookstall. We strongly support this initiative and we hope to see you there!

Our own show Globalrail has reached the end of its run. We’re grateful to our Exhibition Manager Alan who arranged all these events, as well as to all who exhibited, assisted, and brought their trade stands along. Over many years previously the Society hosted a show at various venues and we are sorry that it is not currently possible for us to uphold the tradition.
