The PRC provides support for the Swanage Railway Trust and the Swanage Railway. Our main focus is the presentation of railway-oriented talks, slide and film shows. Our meetings include an "update" on the latest happenings on the Swanage Railway. Details of our latest programme are shown below.

Meetings have been cancelled for the rest of 2020 because of the coronavirus outbreak. It was hoped to resume next January but the recent upsurge in the virus will prevent us from doing so.
We have decided to trial online presentations, with videos of interest to Swanage Railway supporters.
The first main presentation will be on 15th January 2021 but it is hoped that there will be other videos leading up to that date.
Further details will of course be made in due course.
