Midland Railway
Carriage & Wagon Resources

Do you come here often?

If you do, you are obviously interested in some aspect of the Midland Railway and are getting some benefit from what we have to offer here — or so we sincerely hope! None of this would be possible without the Midland Railway Society and the Midland Railway Society cannot survive without members ...who are people just like you. As well as supporting the Midland Railway Study Centre (and gaining access to some really useful exclusive resources for MRS Members), membership connects you with a wide ranging community of knowledgable, friendly and helpful like-minded souls. All for the incredibly reasonably annual subscription of £20. This also includes; the Journal (three per year), Newsletter (quarterly), informative and convivial meetings, visits to places of historical Midland Railway interest and access to our well stocked bookstall.

With all that, what are you waiting for? Download a membership form and send it back to us. Easy.

Carriage & Wagon Drawings

We have carefully selected a diverse range of nearly 50 C&W drawings from our collection that can be downloaded to assist you with your modelling project.

This drawing was one of many from the collection used by the Midland Railway Society's President for 2023/24, Andy Brown, in his Presidential Address to the 2024 AGM titled 'Midland Railway Wagon Development to 1878'. Click the image to download the full 8Mb 300dpi scan...

If this is your first encounter with the Midland Railway's Carriage & Wagon Drawing Register, Andy Boothman - who is responsible for the hard work in making this database available electronically - has prepared an introduction to the subject. That page also contains a link to over four dozen hi-res C&W drawings that can be downloaded.
