About the Breakdown Crane Association



If you would like to become a member, please register to the Forum (if you have not already done so) and then use the Contact Us form to request membership.  Please include a brief note about your connection with British railway breakdown cranes.

In order to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, the BDCA will not publicise any member's personal details.  Initial member-to-member communication can be made via the Forum's 'private message' (PM) facility.


The BDCA operates on a generally informal basis.  Any internal business of the association will normally be conducted via the Members Only section of the Forum.

The officers of the BDCA may appoint their own successors but, should it become necessary, members may decide amongst themselves on one or more successor officers, the process to be conducted within the Members Only section of the Forum.
