The Heritage Lottery Fund in Great Britain has awarded a 95,000-pound grant to a partnership led by the Friends of the National Railway Museum for the creation of a new National Archive of Railway Oral History. The three-year project will provide a collection of recorded interviews with people who have spend their working lives on the railways. Supported by the Institute of Logistics and Transport, the archive is expected to offer a wealth of information to students of social and railway history. It will also create opportunities for museum visitors to listen to recollections about the railways.
