The branch was formed in March 1950 and we are pleased to say that some of the original and early members are still attending indoor meetings. The geographical area covered by the Branch includes the Hope Valley, Chesterfield, Retford, Doncaster and Barnsley.

In years gone by the Branch organised rail tours and outdoor visits to railway sites, principally locomotive depots. Recently however, outdoor visits have been few and far between due to the loss of suitable railway sites and the restrictions now in place following the privatisation of the railway system.
