IRRS – London Area

The London Area of the Irish Railway Record Society provides a forum for those interested in Irish transport, particularly railways.

We host monthly talks at central London venues, from October to April, for illustrated talks by speakers on Irish transport topics.

Each Spring we hold our Transport Collectors’ Market at Chiswick, West London.

The 2017/18 series of monthly meetings will cover a wide range of Irish railway topics, from Historic to Modern, from North and South.

Well attended and featuring interesting & expert presenters,  many of whom travel from Ireland, our talks provide an opportunity for our speakers to impart specialist knowledge and information. We particularly seek those who may illustrate their talk with rare and / or exceptional photographs.

Every talk also has a post-talk write-up.

Transport Collectors’ Market

The Transport Collectors’ Market has been a feature of the transport sales calendar in London since 1980. Hosted at Chiswick Town Hall, with up to 40 exhibitors’ sales stands, together with a supporting video show, and refreshments, our market is a well-established venue for the purchase of new and ‘pre-owned’ transport related items.

Other Events and Sales Stands

Our sales stand at the Warley National Railway Model Exhibition, flies the flag for the IRRS as a whole, particularly the London area. We also attend ScaleForum.

Collections and Bequests

The London Area of the IRRS is delighted to accept collections of Irish railway material, that would otherwise be disposed of; we can make good use of it.
