With a few notable exceptions, published works about railway architecture have tended to be written on a pre-grouping company basis. However, the architects, engineers and contractors who designed and built our railways were largely self-employed and would go wherever work was available. This is reflected in their architectural legacy, something which often seems to have eluded students of the subject. This illustrated talk explores the work of a number of such people and uncovers widespread use of similar or identical building designs over a wide geographical area.

This presentation is an extended version of the paper given by John Minnis and Philip Brown to the recent EMLR2 conference at the NRM
