Activities

In addition to receiving 6 copies of the member’s magazine, LiveRail, each year, Southern Electric Group members can participate in other activities.

The Southern Electric Group regularly organises members only Site Visits to depots, signalboxes, stations and other sites.

There are two branches which meet regularly for talks, slide shows and presentations. SEG members are welcome to attend.

We occasionally organise Railtours for both members and non-members, proceeds from which go towards restoration of our 4COR 3142.

And of course, Southern Electric Group members are always welcome to help with restoration of our 4COR 3142.

Finally, the constitution of the group requires an Annual General Meeting, and Extraordinary General Meetings as required.

Branch meetings
