The majority of our resources are our books, timetables and photographs.  We have several thousand books with a variety of leaflets/ pamphlets on British railways past and present including the preserved railways.  Our time tables include working time tables and passenger from the older railway companies and British Rail.  The image collection includes, at present 60,000 photographs, slides, postcards and prints of railway related items.  It is constantly being added to and there are hundreds in the queue awaiting identification.

In addition we have maps, diagrams and stories of railway life and labour (including some of the information railwaymen were given about the Unions).  Family history is something we are often asked about and we do hold a small amount of individual information.  There are several books showing the wider genealogical field for researchers.
