    History

    From the s.e.r.a website.

    The Suburban Electric Railway Association (SERA) was formed in 1996, but was then called the Mersey & Tyneside Electric Preservationists as the group had the original intention to secure for preservation the Merseyside 503 and the South Tyneside EPB electric multiple units (EMUs). Both these aims were achieved within 8 months and the group expanded its aims over the next couple of years to promote the preservation of DC electric suburban trains from all areas of England. With this expansion of aims came a need to create a new identity that reflected the national scope of the group and so in 1998 the group changed its name to the Suburban Electric Railway Association.

    SERA assembled the largest private collection of electric multiple units in the country between 1996 and 2006 and they are all located at the Electric Railway Museum.

    The SERA contributed to the creation of The Electric Railway Museum in 2008 and handed over the responsibility for the running of the site in Baginton to Electric Railway Museum Limited in 2009. SERA remains independant of that organisation but has transferred items from our collection to the ownership or custody of Electric Railway Museum as they have become suitable for the criteria of the Museum, the museum only accepts items into its collection that have either been restored or are in the process of active restoration. SERA retains responsibility of several items that need longer term restoration plans but it is possible that these may transfer to the Electric Railway Museum collection in the future as these plans come to fruition.


    It was a nice relaxed explore with no hassle except from the cold!
