Railway Operational Items - Paperwork

The Railways as with any other organisation in pre computer days produced vast amounts of paperwork and although much was disposed of, by its sheer quantity there remain examples from the earliest days until recent times. One popular area of collective is Luggage Labels which were small pieces of paper attached to luggage to show the destination and sometimes the originating station. They are readily available and are probably one of the most collected areas of Railway paperwork.

If you are more interested in the running of the Railways rather than the Hardware in use then you can easily build up a collection buying from Specialist and non Specialist auctions. A good starting point may be the Paperwork section of the Sheffield Railwayana Auction - these auctions are held every three months. Click here for details of dates.
