The National Archives, in partnership with the National Railway Museum, has launched 'All change!' - a new online resource charting the history of how railways have changed peoples' lives over the last two centuries. 

'All change!' brings together the railway collections of The National Archives and the National Railway Museum, using video, photography and data visualisations to broaden access to historical records and celebrate our rich railway heritage.  

Railways Change Lives conference

This resource has been created to accompany the Railways Change Lives conference that is being held in September by The National Archives, Kew on Saturday 7 September, and the National Railway Museum, York on Saturday 14 September.  

Dr Paul Carter, Principal Records Specialist at The National Archives (and speaker at the Railways Change Lives conference) commented: 'Railways have changed peoples' lives over the last two centuries in many different ways. We have been working with the National Railway Museum to bring together our collections to create a new online resource to accompany the Railways Change Lives conference, celebrating over 200 years of railway history.'
