Railway Resource Centre
Access to Research Facilities

The ARHS Railway Resource Centre (RRC) (formerly ARHS Archives) is managed by the ARHS (NSW Division). The collection currently houses thousands of documents, books, periodicals, photographs and slides that the Society has acquired over many years. It is constantly being added to, by deliberate acquisition and also through donations and bequests by Society members and others whose contributions are greatly valued.

There are two facilities available that allow you to access the RRC reference library and resource collection:

Reading RoomThe Mal Park Reading Room is open during the following times (except public holidays):

EVERY Tuesday 12 noon - 4.00 pm

Because our collection contains much information that is not available from any other source, we are able to provide research facilities for most general and commercial enquiries. Should the required information not be available in our collection, we can often obtain this from other sources.
