Railfuture now holds one national conference each year, normally in the autumn (in addition to its national AGM for members). The conference is competitively priced, to be within rail users' price range, and is open to everyone. Railfuture members are usually offered a chance to attend conferences at a discounted rate if booked early; for non-members there's often a discounted 'book and join' package.
Details of other internal Railfuture meetings, open only to elected/selected members, including the annual Branches & Groups Day held each autumn, are here: Rf-internal.
