While we upgrade our membership system and implement online subscription payments, we must ask intending members to print out the membership application form below and post it to us with a cheque or postal order. Rest assured that this is not our permanent solution, and a better system will be introduced. Our membership rates are listed on the form – have a look and see what great value they are.
You can also print out our roll-fold colour brochure, which summarises our aims and activities, and sets out the benefits of membership. The rear panel contains a smaller, tear-off membership application form.
An Author's View
‘Old railways provide uniquely fascinating routes through both town and country, but they remain man-made, artificial routes. Almost inevitably, one finds questions coming to mind – why does the line go this way rather than that? who travelled this route and why? and what sort of machines were in use? The more you think you know, the more the questions multiply and the more fascinating the whole exercise becomes – and I use the word “exercise” deliberately for, if railway walking does nothing else, it does get us out of the dusty archives and into the open air.’ (Anthony Burton, Walking the Line, Blandford Press, 1985)
