About GRES


Gravesend Railway Enthusiasts Society was formed in 1970 for people with an interest in railways and other forms of transport such as trams, buses, planes and shipping.

Railway modelling is also of great interest to many of our members. Some of members take their layouts to exhibitions in the County. We also have an annual exhibition at the beginning of November.
