Different ways to research

We're currently reviewing our Research and Archive section and gradually migrating content to our new archive and catalogue database.

Research and archive at the National Railway Musuem

Whatever you're interested in, our research facilities are here to help.

In Search Engine – our library and archive centre – you can find the answers to your railway questions, discover more about our collection, or just relax with the latest copy of your favourite railway magazine.

Our online library and archive collection lists our vast store of drawings, book, timetables and much more.

See research help for online research tools, both in and out of our museum.
