'The Railway & Canal Historical Society is for everyone with an interest in the history of transport in Britain — not just inland waterways and railways, but also tramroads, roads, aviation, coastal shipping, ports and pipelines — from pre-Roman times to the day before yesterday ... The Society has a number of Regional Groups ... These exist to provide a focal point for members and to organise meetings and visits in the proximity of where they live. Society members do not join these Groups, and all members and their guests are welcome (indeed, encouraged) to attend any meetings or events that interest them regardless of its geography.'

'The Society was founded in Cheltenham in 1928 at a time when there was little official information published about locomotive stock, their allocations or regular duties. The Society set about rectifying this by members writing to each other, the publishing of a magazine and some meetings organised around the country ... Move on to the present day and the Society is still going strong with 3000 members ... Our branches hold meetings at least monthly in the season at over thirty centres and in the course of a year host over 200 presentations on a vast range of railway subjects covering the modern scene as well as history and nostalgia subjects.'
