Irish Railway Record Society – London

Welcome to the London Area of the Irish Railway Record Society.

We provide a forum in London for Members of the Society and others interested in Irish transport, particularly railways, covering all aspects of the subject – historical and contemporary, infrastructure, rolling stock, operations and people, throughout the island.
