News

2016 marks the 60th Anniversary of the Railton Owners Club founded in July 1956.

Not the oldest of specialist Clubs, but nevertheless one of the most friendly and social organisations. In 1956, long before the publication of specialist magazines catering for old cars, the only publications were possibly ‘Motor Sport’ and occasionally mentions of old cars by the ‘Motor and Autocar’. 1930’s cars were in daily use in 1956 and initially notes were placed under windscreen wipers when Railtons were seen at the side of the road to encourage membership. Some years later, the ROC invited owners of Brough Superior cars and Hudsons to join the Club. Most of which share the same mechanical components. Although the Club only has a limited membership, (averaging some 200 worldwide), we are able to provide a by-monthly Bulletin, (by post to all members in the UK and post or an electronic version for overseas members). We also maintain a ‘Register’ of all currently known and previously existing cars and a ‘Spares Scheme’ which offers new origin and remanufactured parts. We also offer second hand mechanical parts! Technical advice is available! If you have never driven a Railton, Brough Superior or Hudson 8 cylinder, think about doing so. The performance available from these 1930’s car makes is very impressive!
