A bit of background about the TLRS. They formed in 1938 and cater for people interested in trams and tramways in all their forms, and is the leading society in the field of tramway modelling. The Society publishes a magazine Tramfare and has a number of Area Groups who meet regularly.
The Aims of the Society are:-

- To encourage tramway modelling and to demonstrate such models
- To publish a magazine and other literature, and to maintain a library and archives of photos
- To hold meetings and arrange visits for members
The TLRS has a collection of large-scale and small-scale tram models some of which are historically important items. The TLRS also has an archive of over 170,000 photographs and 1,200 drawings related to trams and tramways, as well as many books and mazazines which are very useful when, say, researching for a new model.
