Document Library

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.

For other online documents relevant to railway research, please see the excellent digital archive provided by the Signalling Record Society.


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.
