Our archive and library collections
Our archives hold the 'raw materials' of railway history: letters, technical reports, engineering drawings and much more.
Working drawings for steam locos, carriages and wagons.
Access our information sheets for our Locomotives and Rolling Stock collection.
We have approximately 20,000 books in the Book Collection, spanning pre-railway history up to the present day.
We have a collection of around 800 journals (or 'serials') – and we're still collecting 300 of them today.
Everything from railway tickets to fabrics used to furnish carriages.
