RailSoc

RailSoc

We are the University of Birmingham Railway Society, or RailSoc for short. We are the society for anyone interested in everything and anything to do with railways. We cater for those who have career aspirations in the rail industry and a casual interest in railways. If you’re interested in any of the following types of events, please get in touch:

  • Industrial Visits
  • Heritage Railway Visits
  • Model Railway Exhibition Visits
  • Disused Railway Walks
  • Socials

Having only been founded in October 2017 we are one of the newest societies in the University, so why not be part of something exciting and new!

If you’d like to find out more and get involved, please join our Facebook group and visit our Facebook page.
