We aim to produce a range of useful resources in due course.

Initial preparations for some surveying work are currently underway. The initial aim is to compile basic contact details for the hundreds of organisations that hold transport archives, and an indication of the themes of their collections. This could then act as a resource for researchers, and also help to identify suitable homes for new collections. As a starting point a draft Taxonomy has been developed to help identify key themes.

Several volunteers have already expressed interest in helping with sections relating to their own interests and experience. If you would like to help, please do contact us at
