The International Fellowship of Railroading Rotarians (IFRR) is made up of Rotarians who have an interest in railroading in any format, type, size or related interests. This may consist of steam, diesel, electric, model railroads, rail fan photography, rail travel, railroad collectibles, private rail cars, trolley cars and what ever related interest there is from the membership.
|Please join us at the RI Convention in Atlanta! IFRR will host a booth in the House of Friendship. Plus member luncheon meeting and possible excursions. Check listings in our “What’s New” section to the left. Members will also receive convention updates via email. Sign up for Booth times and the Luncheon here.|

We arrange railroading activities and events as the membership desires. This may range from organizing or providing assistance for train travel international and national, to sharing tips and ideas for model railroads. The website and email newsletter are great places to announce railroading events for all to visit and participate. Perhaps one has visited a historical or preserved railway or has one in their community; this is the place to let others know about it.
The email newsletter and website are a place to show off your interests with photos of trains you have seen, layouts you have visited, models built, etc. It is also a discussion opportunity to get answers to questions you have about railroading. They are a place to share your railroading experiences with others who have the same interest. You can also swap and sell train memorabilia, model trains and related items.
This fellowship will continue the traditions of railroading around the world. With Railroading Rotarians communicating and sharing the past, present and further of railroading will be preserved.
