THE MIDLAND RAILWAY
The Midland Railway Study Centre
Housed within Derby's Silk Mill, it is the largest publicly accessible collection of documents and ephemera relating to the activities of the Midland Railway, its constituent companies, and its legacy on today's society.
On this site you will find details about the Study Centre's collections and how to access them. The site also provides a pathway to finding information relating to the Midland Railway.
The Midland Railway Study Centre is very proud to be a Partner in Excellence with the National Railway Museum.
The operating dates for 2014 are still being finalised. If you are thinking of visiting us, please let us know as we may be able to arrange some dates around your diary instead of ours!
Normal Service Resumes
We are extremely pleased that the work to refurbish the ground floor of the Silk Mill has been completed. Derby Museum now turn their attention to the highly imaginative "Re:Make" project to bring the building back into regular use. More details on this and a link to the Museum's own web site can be found on our News page.
Meanwhile, back in the Study Centre itself, our focus continues to be on cataloguing and storing the new acquisitions which all three partner organisations are adding to their collections. As the New Year approaches, our volunteers are already marking in the dates they are generously giving up in order to keep the Study Centre running. We hope to publish the operating dates for 2014 very soon.
