Working & Public Timetable Collection

This comprises a wealth of useful research material, much of which is not available on loan from other sources.

The collection was started in the 1950s, and its size has now become so large that it has become necessary to divide it into two. These are the Pre-1970 and the Post-1969 Collections. Current WTTs are not held in the collection.

The Pre-1970 Collection.

This is held by Rodger Green.  Enquiries by e-mail please.

The Post-1969 Collection.

This is held by Kurt Sickelmore.  Enquiries by e-mail please.
