The Cambridge University Railway Club was founded in 1911, and as such, is the third oldest railway club in the world. Today its members' interests cover the whole of the railway scene, both in Britain and throughout the world. The club is primarily run by students and staff of Cambridge University, but one does not have to be from the University to join the club. The CURC tries to arrange an event in Cambridge every week during Full Term. On most occasions this involves an invited speaker giving an illustrated talk on a specific subject, and this is almost always a professional from the rail industry or preservation.
The termcard has a summary of the current term's events. Further details are available at the Club's CUSU events and Talks@Cam pages; these are also more likely to be updated promptly if event details change.
For more information (without commitment) please contact the Secretary, or come to a meeting (non-members welcome unless stated otherwise). Non-members may attend up to three meetings at no cost; for the fourth and subsequent meetings attended, there is a non-member charge of £2 per meeting, to help cover our costs.
Student membership is £8 for one year, or £20 for life. Non-students may join as town members for £16 per year. Members of Cambridge University may join the Club via the CUSU website; alternatively, you can pay for membership at any meeting, or by transfer to the Club's bank account (details on request).
