The Cambridge University Railway Club (CURC) was formed in 1911 and is the third oldest railway club in the world, after The Railway Club (1899 - now defunct) and the Stephenson Locomotive Society (1909). It is one of the clubs and societies of the University of Cambridge.

The CURC activities include:

  • Meetings, where a line of notable speakers have spoken, including Sir Nigel Gresley.
  • Visits, including Steam drives and Brake Van rides.
  • Annual Photo Competition
  • Annual dinner at a Cambridge University college

The CURC had a good friendship with the Oxford University Railway Society (OURS), with an annual Varsity Quiz. However OURS folded in the late 1990s.
