UK - Cumbrian Railways Association
The Cumbrian Railways Association was formed in 1976 in order to foster a widening interest in the fascinating history of the railways of Cumbria. Cumbria has enjoyed a remarkably diverse railway history. Starting with locally promoted lines such as those from Carlisle to Newcastle and Maryport in the 1830s and 40s, these were soon linked into the first of the great trunk lines through the area, the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway and its northern partner, the Caledonian Railway. Local lines proliferated round the coast serving the burgeoning coal and iron industries of West Cumberland and Furness, with the Furness Railway eventually dominating the scene in the south and west - and performing a vital role in the development of its home town, Barrow-in-Furness. Across the county ran the links from the Durham coal fields to West Cumberland and along the Pennines came the Settle & Carlisle line of the Midland Railway.

UK - Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Society
In early 1950 members of the Bradford Railway Circle got together and started a correspondence group discussing the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway. They placed an advertisement in the March 1950 issue of the Model Railway Constructor inviting like minded individuals to join. By 1956 a regular Newsletter was in production and its first editor, Tom Wray, was at the helm.

Since that date membership has grown steadily and we now have over 800 members in the UK and overseas.

The Society aims to bring together all those with an interest in the ‘Lanky’ whether it be in historical research or railway modelling. We have a range of regular publications which we believe are the best of any line society. Go to the Publications page to find out more.

We also have some superb books, details of which you can find on the Books page of our On-Line Shop. We have a large collections of photographs and drawings many of which have been digitised and made available for research purposes.

UK - London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company
Welcome to the LMS Society web site, which is concerned with the London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company, which owned and operated a large part of the railway system in the United Kingdom from January 1923 until December 1947.

The London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company was formed as a result of the enactment of the 1921 Railways Act, which grouped 115 railways into 4 main companies; the grouping took effect from 1st January 1923, when the 'Big Four' companies came into existence; the other three being the London and North Eastern Railway, Southern Railway and Great Western Railways. There were three railways that remained jointly owned, the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway (LMS and SR), the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway (LMS and LNER), 50% of each was owned by the LMS and the Cheshire Lines Committee, of which the LMS' share was one-third, the LNER owning two thirds.

What is the Society about? We are an established publisher of railway books and our in-house SLS Journal; we also have an unprecedented collection of photographic and drawings material in several collections; we organise local meetings and events; we are the custodian of a 1/6 scale LNWR built locomotive Orion; we have our own railway archive material in museums. Further railway and SLS information is available on the attached pages including a a section with information about why the SLS is of relevance to railway modellers and film makers etc. All site updates and news items are listed on the News & updates page and regular visitors to the site should link to the news and updates page rather than this, more static, index page.

The SLS is a Society that will give you the in depth coverage of matters relating to locomotives and railway operation both old and new. The SLS is not just about steam locomotives and the study of our past but encompasses modern traction too. The SLS is a society with a hundred year history but is also looking forward. To the prospective member we offer access to an extensive railway related library our in-house Journal and a national network of meetings centres. We have a proud history, have achieved much in the field of preservation and heritage - why not join us?
