ABSTRACT
This article reports that after a decision to outsource its document storage requirements, the British Railways Board (BRB) has awarded the TDG Ltd. company a two-year contract for the preparation of 60,000 documents for transfer to the Public Records Office (PRO) of Great Britain. The documents, which are of historic and national interest, and date back as far as 1947, represent a detailed history of British rail and will be serviced at the data storage facility of the TDG company in Silvertown, London. The contract is worth in excess of 50,000 pounds and will create three new jobs at the site. The company will be responsible for uplifting files from the BRB's offices at Paddington, and storing and preparing documents before forwarding them for retention as part of the national archive. Operatives have received training from the PRO to enable them to identify and remove unapproved stationery, debris and duplicated documents from the file.
