Deal brings better rail archive access
RAIL artefacts and documents belonging to the Midland Railway Study Centre in Derby are set to become more publicly available.
The centre in Silk Mill Lane houses the largest collection of publicly accessible Midland Railway artefacts.
It has now agreed to become Partners In Excellence with the National Railway Museum in York.
The partnership, which will last for three years, will allow both organisations to share information while improving public access to both of their collections.

The Midland Railway Study Centre houses 44,000 items, including timetables, notices, memos, tickets, maps, plans, drawings and artefacts.
Co-ordinator Dave Harris said: "The archives provide an insight into the extraordinary variety of activities the Midland Railway were involved in, which was much more than simply operating trains.
"This collaboration will improve the service we provide researchers in their quest for information."
