Information Resource

The Information Resource is a 'loose-leaf' information system whereby members can borrow, or possibly obtain digitally depending on copyright and availability, any items that interest them or reflect their researches. The Resource files are not archival; that is, they are not original documents but are generally photocopies or transcriptions, hence being held separately.

After six years' work devoted to archive cataloguing, the Resource is now being cross-checked and listings prepared. As yet, not all rail companies or other Resource categories have been checked (at 1st March 2018).

Resource lists for each company can be accessed by clicking the Railways of Wales link in the menu on the left of this page, and the listing - if available - will be found in or near a 'Further Reading' section in the appropriate page.

It is planned to upload quarterly updates when any lists have been changed and advertise the fact in the Newsletter.
