RTSA provides an exciting and convenient portal to the technical world of railways. It provides opportunities to learn and network with peers. And also the opportunity to attend conferences and site events.


RTSA is now linked in to specialist railway libraries and the network provides the opportunity to share and disseminate knowledge.

Now that RTSA has its own newsletter embedded in Australasia's foremost Track & Signal magazine, all our members can enjoy the full Track & Signal experience including leading articles from industry leaders.

RTSA's activities strongly encourage learning and excellence in practice so we provide a large number of awards and scholarships annually. We reach into our potential membership by conducting sessions where we put University Students and Industry Representatives into a congenial atmosphere. The students are able to ask all those questions they have been afraid to ask and get answers from real practitioners.

On learning, RTSA has over 60 sessions around Australasia every year where members and guests can listen to emerging and exciting technical innovation. We also conduct field visits, called STORE, where we investigate, on the ground, what is happening in a part of the industry. Recent STORE's include Light Rail and Regional Rail and Heavy Haul.

There's plenty of things to do and discuss with like-minded colleagues in an industry that is rolling out the latest technology.
