modern Welsh railway network
30 years, the Welsh Railways Research Circle (WRRC) has been bringing together
researchers and modellers who are interested not only in the mainline
and branch railways of Wales and the Border Counties, but also the tramways,
tramroads and the many rail connected industrial locations across the Principality.
Since 1978 the principal purpose of the WRRC has
been to provide members with a forum for discussion, facilities to carry
out research and to enable contacts to be established with others of similar
interests, so going some way to avoid duplication of research effort.
To achieve these objectives, the WRRC has a research
centre at Rhiwderin, near Newport in South Wales, a regular members' newsletter,
a published journal and offers regular meetings and field excursions.
