The Midland Railway Trust’s mission is to create working and static museums to commemorate the Midland Railway Company (MR), its predecessors and successors.
Based in Derby, the MR (1844 – 1923) was at the forefront of the development of railways in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. It was then incorporated into the London Midland and Scottish Railway, which subsequently became part of British Railways. Derby continues to be a train building city, using the original site of the MR’s carriage works.
The Midland Railway Trust Ltd is registered as a charitable trust No. 502278.
The Midland Railway Trust’s vision for the next five years is to: “Create a stronger, vibrant working museum, which celebrates the Midland Railway and associated transport heritage, and educates and inspires future generations”
