This document library contains copies of various documents that I’ve collected in the course of my railway research. Some have been scanned and shared as PDF documents – please feel free to download these and use them for your own research. Note that file sizes range from approx. 4 MB to 50+ MB depending on the length of the document. Copyright remains with the original publishing company; I am sharing these in the interest of advancing research into railway history.

You can search the full-text of the documents stored in the library via this Google Custom Search. The full-text has been generated by automated OCR on the scanned documents, so may not be 100% accurate! If there’s something specific you’re looking for, I would still advise reading through the relevant documents.
