The Society has about 35 members and provides regular talks, slide and film shows.

There are lots of visits to heritage rail sites and rail installations both standard and narrow gauge and also garden railways.
Membership is open to anyone over 14. The Society is self financing and non-profit making, it has no political or sectarian associations. It is governed by its own constitution and management of the society's affairs are carried out by a seven man committee elected at an annual general meeting.
Membership costs £25 per annum and to apportion cost more fairly levies are imposed and members pay £2 each for every time they attend. Guests pay £5 each. Modellers pay a mandatory 50p per week for the use of the workshop. Junior members (of school age) pay £5 per annum.
