Welcome to the Railway Study Forum
CILT's latest professional Forum (RSF) has been created following a merger with the Railway Study Association (RSA).
The new Forum offers RSF members all the benefits offered previously by the RSA, but also the opportunity to engage with CILT members through our network of like-minded Rail Sector professionals. You can find out more about joining CILT here.
Who are we?
Our membership includes individuals with a wide range of backgrounds and expertise, embracing operations, engineering, business planning, project management, marketing and consultancy. Now that we have merged with CILT's membership, we are able to engage with a wider network of people working in the Rail Sector.
The aim is to promote events organised by the Railway Study Forum through the auspices of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport. Originally founded in 1909, the Railway Study Forum (formerly the Railway Study Association) is one of the rail industry's long-est standing bodies and sets out to improve knowledge of how railways work and operate around the world. The Railway Study Forum provides a forum for the exchange of experience, knowledge and opinion on issues relating to all aspects of the railway industry. Our membership comes from a diverse range of experience and backgrounds encompassing all areas of the railway. The Railway Study Forum arranges events ranging from regular talks from industry professionals, study trips within the UK and abroad, workshops and social events. These events provide a valuable opportunity for networking, education and personal and professional development. The forum usually meets online (Zoom meetings) or in person.
How do we do this?
- We arrange a variety of meetings, ranging from formal lectures followed by a question and answer session to seminars, to stimulate member engagement.
- We organise visits and study tours to railway sites and installations both in the UK and abroad to promote understanding.
- We encourage personal and professional development through informal networking.
