Alte Zeit Gruppe (Historical German Railway Group) and European Railway Association to merge

Press announcement issue 20th January 2014

The Alte Zeit Gruppe is to join forces with the recently-formed European Railways  Association.
The Alte Zeit Group will become an autonomous national section within the ERA catering for those interested in German Railways from the very beginning right up to the modern era.
As well as strength in numbers, there are many other benefits arising from the merger : the ERA is to adopt the AZG’s modern web-based electronic membership system and as the ERA expands by adding national sections covering the railways of other European  countries, all members will have access to all sections for a single, low subscription of £11.50 pa.

Until the new website of the combined group is launched at the end of March, new members can join the ERA online through the AZG membership portal at
