Spotters Companion © NREA
NREA Established 1976
National Railway Enthusiasts Association or better known as NREA was founded in 1976 by a small group of Railway Enthusiasts whose aim was to cater for other enthusiast needs. They ran highly successful tours to British Railway installations all over Britain, arranged visits to individual British Rail Depots and British Rail Locomotive Works and organised special charter trains including the “Doncaster Double” and the “Glasgow Double”. They also compiled information for the publication “SPOTTERS COMPANION” . With the advent of EWS and the demise of the official permission to visit British Installations, the demand for tours in Britain declined. However NREA decided that there was another need required by enthusiasts and that need was to venture into Europe to pursue their interest.
NREA European Tours were re-
However following the Madrid Railway Bombing and the increased security at depots in Europe NREA suspended tours and also membership.
However NREA is still alive and actively producing “The Spotters Companion” on an annual basis.
