The Railway Division incorporates seven centres located in key geographical areas of the United Kingdom. Each centre organises its own activities and programme of events.
The Division consists of IMechE Members of all grades professionally involved or interested in the science and practice of railway engineering. Its scope covers research, design, development, procurement, manufacture, operation, maintenance and disposal of traction, rolling stock, fixed equipment and their components, within rail, rapid transit and all forms of guided surface transport.
