Drawings and papers from manufacturers, businesses and organisations
Drawings and business records.
This collection contains drawings and business records from some of the most significant railway manufacturing firms. These firms were major employers in their areas, and the vehicles they made were exported around the world.
These PDF files list the drawings we have in these collections. They may not be complete. If you'd like to come and see something on one of these lists, see our archive and library centre. To order a copy of a drawing, see our copying service page.
