The Bluebell Railway Museum Archive will contain all the reference material and photographs in the care of the Museum.

The reference material contains public timetables, working timetables, guide books, general reference books and much more. We already have a vast collection of material from the very early days of the London Brighton & South Coast Railway up to British Railways end of steam. Though biased towards the railways of South East England all the pre-grouping areas of the Southern Railway are represented. Archive material will be made available for research purposes.

The photographic archive is huge, containing many 1000s of photographs of, mainly, southern interest. Effort is already being made on cataloguing this material and the first four collections are already available.

The Plan Archive contains many of the original 1880 plans of the Bluebell Railway.
