The Japanese Railway Society (JRS) was founded in 1991 in London to promote the knowledge of the
railways of Japan in the UK & other non-Japanese-speaking parts of the world. Since 1991, there have
been several activities like exhibitions (also of railway models), a TV-show (on Naruhodo The World, Fuji TV),
many meetings in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and many guided tours to and meetings in Japan.
Our membership is now more than 200 people in over 10 countries worldwide.

    Winter Wonderland

    Late December saw the heaviest snowfalls for a few years occur in some parts of the country, in some cases affecting service operations. We kick off the new year with a look at a few photos from Anthony Robins on the 26th December 2021 where services were able to continue operating.
