Welcome to the Midlands Centre of the Railway Division 

The 2021-22 session promised a return to normality and we started holding face-to-face meetings again but as the situation deteriorated we have had to resort to virtual meetings again.

We plan to put on a wide ranging and interesting programme including the regular 'Future of Rail Presentation Competition' evening. The emphasis is of course on railways and summary of our forthcoming programme for 2021-22 can be viewed via the link on the left.

We generally hold joint meetings with the Derby Railway Engineering Society, a long established professional society for local railway engineers, and also with the Permanent Way Institution.

We have also sought to improve our links with the other engineering institutions to increase the breadth of issues we cover, incorporating the mechanical with the electrical and the civil aspects of an integrated railway system. We hope that these links will continue to bolster our programme and will support our members’ professional development.

Please note that due to the change of location, for the new session our meetings will commence at 18.00 for 18.30 and are preceded by tea, coffee and light refreshments. The meetings are free of charge and open to members and non-members.

Our regular venue for 2021/22 has changed from previous years and was

The Waterfall
Railway Terrace
Derby DE1 2RU
(Free on-street parking is available after 18.00)

Please also note that the joint DRES meeting in December will be undertaken using a Zoom presentation

We have decided that future meetings for the 2021-22 session will be conducted virtually only
Formal posters advertising forthcoming meetings are circulated to the majority of railway-associated companies and individuals within the area prior to the date giving a summary of the lecture and the specific location. Details will also appear on the IMechE website.
If you (or your company) would like to be added to this circulation list please get in touch with our secretary on rdmidlands@imeche.org
