Railway History Research

The purpose of the Railway History Research Group is to provide a service to members who are involved in researching railway history from the start of the first steam-hauled passenger service onwards – and to encourage those who aspire to do so – by providing a forum in which they can seek information, try out ideas and disseminate information of potential value to fellow researchers.

The Group does this by circulating papers of various different types including:

Notes & Queries: queries on matters that members are investigating and notes on material that may be of interest to other researchers, also including responses to previously published queries/notes

Sources: articles about research resources

Reprints: articles of general interest originally published in relatively little known sources

Occasional Papers, including work in progress, draft papers and kite-flying
