Milton Keynes [MKY]
Welcome to the Milton Keynes branch pages on the RCTS website. Here you will find details of our meetings held each month from March 2023 at the The Quadrant: MK (Network Rail offices) in Milton Keynes, conveniently sited for the railway station and bus stops and with plenty of free parking. In January and February we host our meetings online on Zoom.
We aim to offer a varied and interesting selection of subjects and speakers throughout the year covering the local railway scene and beyond. We organise outdoor visits during the summer months which have included visits to heritage railways, signal boxes and driver simulators.
Contact details for our Branch Chairman and Secretary are shown below if you have any queries about our branch or meetings.
We are a friendly branch and welcome everyone to our meetings, whether you are an existing RCTS member, interested in joining or just want to see a particular presentation.
Our meeting room is located in The Quadrant: MK, the Network Rail building which is located just a short walk from Milton Keynes Central railway station and bus interchange. There is also free parking nearby. The venue provides modern and comfortable facilities and is fully accessible. Please click on the venue name for more info and directions.
