The IRREGULAR SPECIAL RAILWAY COMPANY was founded in 1992 and is the original society devoted to Sherlock Holmes and railways. The aims of the company are to correlate information from the other various Holmesian societies and inform members of any activity with a railway flavour, to organise our own outings, to publish scholarly articles and finally to promote enjoyment in all our aforementioned aims. Current membership stands at around 100 members.
These aims are fulfilled by a quarterly newsletter published in March, June, September and December, the annual Sherlock Holmes Railway Journal which contains a collection of articles along Holmesian lines, the annual Company Directory which lists details of all our members along with their interests, and the various outings organised by the society.
