Visitors to Network Rail’s archive site can explore the history of Britain’s railway infrastructure and learn about stations, bridges and viaducts, tunnels, companies and key people. Visitors can also view historic records, images and designs of famous structures and stations including the Forth Bridge, the Tay Bridge and the Box Tunnel, among others. Records from Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Robert Stephenson, Joseph Locke and William Henry Barlow, among other architectural and engineering leaders, are featured on the site. These historic drawings and diagrams serve to not only garner a deeper appreciation for the railway system, but also outline exactly where and how original infrastructure was constructed, which is important to the running and maintenance of the railway to this day.Network Rail owns all of Britain’s railway infrastructure, including running, maintaining, and developing Britain’s tracks, signaling system, rail bridges, tunnels, level crossings and viaducts, as well as owning all the railway stations and managing 17 key stations. This project represents the first phase of Network Rail’s virtual archive, featuring a portion of the documents; the company plans to continue adding images and documents to the site.
