Rail Archives Research

As part of my MSc, I carried out a research project on the Challenges Facing the Management and Promotion of Archives in Rail-Related Memory Institutions. This project involved a survey of 52 heritage rail-related organisations (including heritage railways, museums, archives and line societies) and a more detailed study of three of these organisations. 

I am making the results of this research freely available in the hopes that it will be of use to organisations affected by the issues raised. 

If you use this research in your own writing, credit would be much appreciated.
