The Cambridge University Railway Club, founded in 1911, is the second oldest railway club in the world. Today its members’ interests cover the whole of the railway scene, from the steam age right through to the present day and also the future, both in Britain and throughout the world. We regularly host talks from keynote speakers in and related to the railway industry, along with exclusive visits to places such as depots, museums, factories and railways!

There is always the opportunity for even receiving internship and job offers through connections of the Club, several alumni are in very high positions in the industry and are keen to meet motivated and intelligent students!

Please do come along find out more. The first two talks are free for non-members, though if you attend frequently the Club shall ask you to become a member or pay £3 on the door.

For more information, please see the CURC website: http://curc.org.uk/
