Great Eastern Journal & News
Membership of the Great Eastern Railway Society brings with it many benefits, including a subscription to the Great Eastern Journal and Great Eastern News, both published quarterly. They are both produced to a professional standard, rivalling the quality of commercial magazines.
The Great Eastern Journal features articles, photographs, plans and drawings dealing with the history of the Great Eastern Railway and associated railways. Each issue currently contains in the region of 52 pages. Running now to almost 190 issues, it represents a substantial resource for those wishing to research the GER. So that you can appreciate the quality and breadth of topics covered, you may download free a sample selection of Journal articles here: pdf Journal Samples (13.72 MB) . A list of the contents of all the Journals produced can be downloaded by clicking: pdf Contents of Journals (429 KB) Members can purchase a DVD containing PDFs of Journals 1-180 through our 'Files Emporium' sales as J1-180DVD
The Great Eastern News provides Society information, including society meetings, GER-relevant events, Great Eastern area contemporary railway news, railway modelling activities, and reviews of books, videos, models and Great Eastern coverage in other publications. There are two CDs containing PDFs of all copies of the News available to members from the 'Files Emporium' as NW1-140.CD and NW141-180.CD
Members have the opportunity of purchasing back numbers of the magazines, either as original magazines (where available) or as electronic PDF files, either singly or as CD/DVD compilations. The latter have the great advantage that, with one exception, the CD/DVDs are searchable, making the finding of a particular subject that much easier.
In summary, many members say that these magazines alone are well worth the subscription. So if you are interested in the GER why not join us by subscribing now!
Non-members may be able to access copies of the Journal from certain libraries and archives, see here.
