Notice to Society Members

Our Society AGM is fast approaching. As last year we are offering members the choice of taking part in person or via Zoom. With the horrible increases in fuel prices the Zoom option is even more attractive. Members using Zoom will be able to vote and take part in discussion in exactly the same way as those in the room. Members are requested to register for either going to Kenilworth of using Zoom. Please email the chairman or secretary to be added to the lists. The Zoom link will be sent out one week before the AGM.

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.
