|RECENT ADDITIONS AND DONATIONS TO THE MIDLAND RAILWAY STUDY CENTRE||
Two substantial collections of Midland Railway signalling material have been donated to the Midland Railway Study Centre in early 2013. These are the 'Dunbar Collection' and the 'Pat Larkam Collection'. Whilst sorting and cataloguing ongoing an outline of these two collections can be viewed here.
Some other new acquisitions which are available to view in the Midland Railway Study Centre...
The Midland Railway Society's library, which is available to all visitors to the Study Centre, has been significantly augmented with a bequest by the late Phil Chopping. Phil's extensive collection of books, many reflecting his particular interest in the Somerset and Dorset railway were left to the Society following his sad death last year. The Society are very grateful to his widow, Brenda, for her significant help in getting these books to the Study Centre.
