THE MIDLAND RAILWAY
The Midland Railway Study Centre is a collaboration between:
It houses the largest publicly accessible collection of Midland Railway ephemera. On this site you will find full details about the Study Centre, its contents, how to use it, and what else the partner organisations can do to assist in finding information about the Midland Railway.
The Midland Railway Study Centre is very proud to be a Partner in Excellence with the National Railway Museum.
The 2013 programme of opening dates can be found here.
The Silk Mill in Derby is undergoing extensive ground floor works in preparation for its re-opening to the public later this year - unfortunately this means that access to the Study Centre is not available from the end of June to the end of October - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for updates.
