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.

    With the on-going global COVID pandemic, travel is restrictive for Japanese railfans with many turning to their models as a substitute for the real thing. Our quarterly Bullet-In magazine features a modelling section, 'Model-In' with each issue. This month we showcase Robert van der Burg's layout "Densha". It is HO scale and appeared in Bullet-In 97, issued in August 2018 .It is exhibited in the Benelux countries.
