Applying for RLS Membership.

Membership of the Society is open to individuals interested in the history of road steam vehicles.

In addition to receiving the quarterly Journal and notice of meetings, members also have the unrivalled opportunity to borrow from the Society’s archives many valuable, often irreplaceable, records, photographs and literature for personal research. An exception is for overseas, associate members, who regrettably are not able to borrow the historic material. There is a non-loan section of unique items in the Society’s Library which can be viewed by appointment.

To safeguard this rare material we ask prospective new members to obtain the support and recommendation of an existing member to confirm their interests in the subject.

The Society has members in the majority of local steam clubs and preservation societies in Great Britain . It is a prospective member’s responsibility to enquire and obtain the support of a current member in support of his/her application. The Society does not publish its membership list.

For new memberships please contact our Membership Secretary who will provide you with an application form. The Society’s Committee discusses and determines all membership applications which must be supported by an existing member. .
