NER Crest

The North Eastern Railway Association [NERA] was formed in 1961 to cater for all enthusiasts interested in the railways of north eastern England, the North Eastern Railway, the Hull & Barnsley Railway, from their successors, and also the smaller independent and industrial railways that operated alongside the main line system. Our members interests cover all aspects of operations - locomotives, rolling stock, train services, stations, signalling, shipping, road vehicles, etc. - both for the general enthusiast and the model maker.

Meetings are held throughout the year at centres such as York, Darlington, Hull and London. A supporting programme of outdoor visits, walks and tours is also arranged. Please see this web site's 'Our Programme' page for details.

At the April 2016 Annual General Meeting, it was agreed that NERA would convert to be a Charity (Registered number 1164199), and operate as a Charity from 1 Jan 2017. A copy of the full Constitution of NERA as a charity can be viewed from this link  NERA CIO Constitution October 2015

If you are interested in joining the Association, please see further information on the membership page.
