For over 40 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 meetings and field excursions.
