Membership Renewal

Thank you for choosing to renew your membership of Railfuture.

Your support is appreciated to help Railfuture with its campaigns to promote Britain's railway for passengers and freight.

It is particularly important at this time, as we do not know what the post-COVID 'new normal' will mean for the railway.

If you (or your organisation) are not currently a member and wish to become one, please click Join Now. If you wish to update your consents to receive communications please click the 'Self-Care' option on the Member Services page.

After choosing the type and length of membership wanted, this page will take you to the PayPal page where you can safely make your payment either using an existing PayPal account or your credit/debit card. If you have a non-UK credit/debit card there may be issues with PayPal depending on the country in which it is registered (e.g. Germany) because additional information is required. Please e-mail [treasurer at] in this case.

About Railfuture

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and all members have an equal say.

Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.

Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.

Railfuture is the campaigning name of Railfuture Ltd.

A not-for-profit Company Limited by Guarantee.

Registered in England and Wales No. 05011634.

Registered Office: Edinburgh House, 1-5 Bellevue Road, Clevedon, North Somerset BS21 7NP (for legal correspondence only).
