York & District Branch


Part of Northern Council until April 2010 when it was decided that we would exist as a stand
alone branch affiliated to the B.T.P.F. At the same time the name of the branch was changed
from York Branch to York and District Railway Pensioners.

Current membership stands at 290 but, like most branches, we struggle to find new members.

We hold two meetings a year in the York Railway Institute. The A.G.M is normally held in April
and the Autumn general meeting in late October/early November.
Speakers are provided at both meetings.
Attendance at these meetings varies between 55 and 85.
