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 club is engaged closely with the railway industry.
