The Forum software has now been updated and the Forum should now be working properly once more. Please note that as part of the upgrade and to fix the issues we were experiencing with users being logged out all user "remember me" log-ins were cleared so you will be asked to log-in again. You should not be required to re-register and existing user names and password will work.

It may be necessary to clear delete cookies (using the button at the main forum page) and/or clear your browser cache on your PC to regain full access.  If using Google Chrome please make sure you select 'four weeks' as the period to delete, not the default 'last 24 hours'

If you experience further issues please contact the webmaster through the contact page.


A recent addition to the Association website is a discussion Forum by which information can be exchanged, questions asked, photographs and documents shared. All the messages posted in the open topics are available to read by any browser of the website at Forum which we hope will increase the knowledge of, and the interest in, the Caledonian Railway.

Posting messages on the CRA Forum is restricted to Caledonian Railway Association members, who initially are required to register and then to log in on each occasion they wish to contribute to the Forum.

Any non-member wishing to contact an Association Officer should go to the Contact page.

To start contributing please go to the Forum and click the Registration button, accept the Terms of Use/Privacy Policy, complete the Registration Form including your CRA membership number and click the Submit button. The confirmation code is required to prevent automated registration by malelovent websites and is thus not easily read; please enter both words separated by a space, they are not case sensitive. If you cannot read the words you can request a new challenge by clicking the top button to the right, or to get an audio challenge click the middle button to the right. If you fail to correctly read the CAPTCHA three time you will be locked out and you should contact the website administrator.

You will receive an email confirming your acceptance as a Registered Forum Member, but as this requires actual intervention by the Administrator there may be a delay.

The CRA will exercise the right and the facilities available, as per the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, to bar any postings from members who misuse the Forum.
