Welcome to the Great Eastern Railway Society website
We hope visitors will find plenty of interest about the former Great Eastern Railway (GER), its predecessors, successors and related railways in the East Anglia area.
The Society caters for all aspects of the railway, both historical and modern day. We take an interest not only in the GER (1862-1922) but also its predecessors such as the Eastern Counties Railway and its successors including the GE Section of the LNER and BR, right through to the present day Network Rail and the Train Operating Companies. Other associated railways in the region are also covered, including the London, Tilbury & Southend Railway, the Colne Valley and Halstead Railway, the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway and the Southwold Railway.
Our members include general enthusiasts, serious railway researchers, ex-railwaymen, dedicated railway modellers, owners/users of ex-GER buildings and librarians/archivists. So browse the site to see how the Great Eastern Railway Society (GERS) can help you.
