What we do and how to join us


Meetings

Meetings are temporarily suspended due to the Covid 19 restrictions, but Presentations are being transmitted electronically by Zoom. Please look at "Programme" to see what is scheduled for the next four months.


Outings

In addition to these speaker meetings we also occasionally organise outings (see our gallery for some examples.) These have included a 'behind the scenes' visit to the First Great Western's Turbo Simulator at Reading, a trip to Bristol celebtating the GWR HST farewell, the Epping & Ongar Railway, the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway, The Spinney Light Railway, Statfold Barn Railway, West Somerset Railway, Wotton Light Railway, Baie de Somme Railway, Wolverton Works, Bredgar & Wormshill Railway, Sittingbourne Railway, Hollycombe Railway, and a visit to Adrian Shooter's The Beeches Light Railway.


Top-quality publication

The Society publishes a quarterly magazine, The Marlow Donkey, named after the steam train which operated the branch line for many years (and which also gave its name to the pub near the railway station). The contents of the magazine are contributed by members, and include articles and photographs of railway interest.


Email news service

Although The Marlow Donkey includes local news of railway interest, there are often topical items - such as information about special trains or society events - where time is of the essence. To fill this gap there is an e-newsletter sent to all members who wish to receive it and who have an email address. An e-newsletter is sent when there is news to share rather than on a regular schedule.


Membership

Full membership costs 16 for a year which includes free entry to all meetings and a copy of each edition of The Marlow Donkey, and each edition of the newsletter by email . New members who can NOT receive The Marlow Donkey by e-mail will be asked to pay an additional 10, (26 in total), to cover the costs of printing, postage and packaging. Alternatively associate membership costs 8 a year which includes each edition of The Marlow Donkey and the Newsletter, but does not include free entry to meetings - you pay 2 per meeting, which is suitable for those who live at a distance. You can join at any of our speaker meetings - the Treasurer, Peter Robins, or any of the committee will be pleased to help. Visitors are welcome to our meetings, but we ask for a payment 3, (members of our affiliate group - the RCTS Maidenhead branch - pay the lower rate of 2).
