Peter Rayner – Vice President

Prior to being a Vice President of the BTPF, I served as National Chairman on two separate occasions amounting to over ten years in the Post.

I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and chair their Accessibility and Inclusion Forum.  I am also a Fellow of the Institution of Railway Operators, an Associate of the Institution of Railway Signal Engineers and a Member of the Chartered Institute of Management.  I am also currently a Vice President of the National Pensioners’ Convention and serve as their Transport Adviser.

I have been a member of the AGE – Platform EU Expert Group on Universal Access and Independent Living since 2004 and have represented AGE as a speaker at Conferences in Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Geneva, Barcelona, Prague and Brussels.  I am also AGE Platform’s mandated representative on the TSI PRM (Technical Specification for Interoperability) (Persons of Reduced Mobility) working party in ERA HQ in Lille and have been so since 2011.

A career railway man, I joined British Railways as a messenger and became Chief Operating Manager.  I am a retired member of the TSSA and NUJ, and still undertake occasional expert witness work mainly for Trade Union solicitors.  A past member of the Samaritans and Amnesty International, I had a book entitled “On and Off the Rails” published in 1997.
