Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have National Rail HQ in York. Please vote and share! Reposted from @rachael_maskell Fantastic news for York today 🚂

Following tough competition from 42 local authorities across Britain, York has been shortlisted as one of the possible locations for the new Great British Railways Headquarters.

Bringing GBR HQ to York would be an opportunity to make York the Uk capital of the railway.

Crucially, the competition is now down to a public vote. Show your support and say #Yes2York by placing your vote at www.gbrtt.com/vote

Keep your eyes peeled for updates on the competition and activities across York in the coming weeks.
