The York Transport Historians Group was established in 2015, and is an informal group committed to bringing together scholars and academics studying transport history at the University of York, the National Railway Museum and within the city. At the current time we have sixteen members from the museum, various university departments (Centre for Lifelong Learning, English, History, Law and Management) and elsewhere, and we hope to stimulate and facilitate transport history research within the City of York. At the current time we hold social events for members, are planning seminars from the Winter term onwards, and on 16 November 2016 we will be holding our first Workshop ‘Making the Connections’ at King’s Manor, part of the University of York.
We will be soon starting on the site a member blog, that will highlight the research members are undertaking. So stay tuned.
For more information on all of these things, please see the relevant pages.
The York Transport Historians Group operates under the general auspices of the Institute of Railway Studies, a joint venture by the National Railway Museum and the University of York.
