The NERA Archive consists of photographs, books, timetables, maps, plans, diagrams and other official railway documents and we currently hold more than 10,000 photographs and 6,500 documents.

We are also jointly responsible with the
Head of Steam Darlington Railway Museum
for maintaining more than 6,000 photographs
taken by our late member John Mallon together with his collection of 4,000 documents assembled during the course of his work on the railway.

Members are welcome to examine any items from the collection (by prior appointment) at the Ken Hoole Study Centre in the Head of Steam Darlington Railway Museum.

For those unable to visit Darlington we can provide digital scans or photocopies of much of our material, subject to size or copyright restrictions.

Our collection has been built up entirely due to the generosity of members in donating material, and the Archivist would be delighted to hear from anyone who has documents or photographs that they would like to make available to us.

The Archivist can be contacted at archivist@ner.org.uk. The current catalogues are available in the XLS spreadsheet format from the following links:
