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 in Aizu Wakamatsu

    Aizu Wakamatsu is one of those places where you can see a variety of different coloured mostly DMU trains. Although that is less so nowadays, it is still a good spot to see a variety of rolling stock, and the snow adds to the atmosphere.
