Caledonian Railway Documents and TTL Archive

Recent updates to the shop have allowed the Caledonian Railway Company documents previously produced by the Association as printed copies to be available to purchase as downloadable pdfs from the website. The pdf file format allows the text of the documents to be searched.

Details of the full range of Company documents, which includes Working and Public Timetables, operational documents, diagram books and results of previous research including transcripts of handwritten documents and registers are available at the shop CR Documents page.  The documents include the Appendix to the 1895 Working Timetable which has not been available before and contains a wealth of detail on the operations of the Caledonian Railway at that time - everything from Ambulance Appliances to Whistles Codes for Engines.

The shop will automatically apply members pricing for logged in users. This requires members to login to the website using the Registration link above. Please note that this is a separate log-in from that used currently for the Forum. As there is a manual check against the membership records before your website membership, and the reduced pricing, will be activated it is worth registering now to avoid any future delays.

Caledonian Railway Staff List - updated August 2021

The latest version of the  database listing any Caledonian Railway staff identified through research has now been uploaded to the website - now containing over 25,000 entries.

This is another significant increase from the 22,000 records in the version uploaded in February 2021, and is driven by further research from the valuation rolls.   Previously we had used these to identify the Station Master living at stations but this further research identified that the Caledonian Railway owned considerable rentable property, which is quite extensive in places such as Motherwell, Carstairs, Coatbridge, etc. including all Railway trades as well as Drivers and Fireman and Guards.  This chance discovery has resulted in a significant number of additional entries to our list - which can downloaded from the Staff Records page.

The Valuation Rolls can be found on the Scotland's People website - enter "Caledonian Railway" in Valuation Rolls to list all the Property owned by the Company.
