NSRC Membership Benefits

Membership of the North Staffordshire Railway Company (1978) Ltd. is open to everyone.
Simply by joining the NSRC and renewing your subscription each year, you will be directly helping to support the heritage of railways in North Staffordshire and the continued success of the ever growing Churnet Valley Railway. Please consider adding a further donation, and selecting the Gift Aid option, wherever possible to help us to achieve that extra bit more in bringing our goals to reality.

What are the benefits?

  • 3 standard CVR day tickets per member, courtesy of the Churnet Valley Railway (1992) PLC
  • Opportunities to become a volunteer, including all training provisions
  • Subscription to the tri-annual Knotty journal, our in-house magazine
  • Full voting rights at the Annual General Meeting (over 18 only)
  • Invitation to NSRC social events

When you join the NSRC the choice is entirely yours – you can simply keep in touch with events by reading the Knotty journal and visiting the line from time to time, taking advantage of your travel discounts, or you can become actively involved with the activities of the CVR and NSRC and feature in the stories yourself! Volunteers are a vital part of the railway, so please contact us if you would like to learn more about getting involved.
