Please note there has been a change to the date of the AGM. Please see the events page for details.

The London & North Western Railway Society regret to announce the death of our long standing member Philip Millard. Joining the Society in 1977 as member number 92 Philip soon became an acknowledged expert on LNWR carriages. He was the author or co author of many publications on the subject which remain the seminal works in this field. He was also a highly skilled modeller with an impressive output of model LNWR carriages. We will remember him for his detailed knowledge but even more so for his willingness to share such valuable information. Our Society owes him a huge debt, as do all of us with an interest in the Premier Line. We should be especially grateful that Philip took steps to ensure that his research material was secured for the future by donating it to the Society. Philip enriched our Society in so many ways, we shall all miss him.
John Gowers Chair London & North Western Railway Society

Welcome to the home page of the LNWR Society which was formed in 1973. We aim to collect and disseminate information about the London and North Western Railway, its constituents and its successors. We are interested in the infrastructure of the railway, the men and women who made it work, as well as the engines and rolling stock which it built and used. We aim to help modellers, preservationists, historians and those with just a passing interest in the LNWR.

Since becoming an educational charity in 2005, our services are provided both for members and for non-members, so please take the time to roam around, use the links at the top and bottom of the page as well as those on the right of this page to navigate around our site.
The London & North Western Railway Company evolved over many years. The same applies to the LNWR Society and to this web site. We intend this to be a ‘living’ site and hope you will visit us again to see what has changed.
