Horse Drawn Railway Vehicles represent an important aspect of the history of our country and this project will allow them to take their rightful place within our industrial and transport heritage.

An important aspect of the project is to survey each vehicle's present condition and record sufficient information to be able to assess its historical significance. Information is recorded on a computer database, so allowing comparisons and information retrieval to be readily accomplished.

Other benefits include helping towards "Collections Management" - by allowing an assessment of how individual horse drawn railway vehicles compare with one another, not only within any particular Railway's or Museum's collection, but also when compared with similar vehicles located at other sites within the UK.
