Heavy Metal volunteers

Roy Green volunteerVolunteers have made a huge contribution to the Heavy Metal project. The volunteers range from students at the University of Reading to retired people and specialists of the Road Locomotive Society. The volunteers have undertaken many tasks including:

  • Cataloguing over 10,000 engineering drawings of Charles Burrell and Sons.
  • Placing over 2000 fragile drawings in protective archival quality sleeves
  • Transferring manual indexes of drawings and photographs of John Fowler and Co and Ransomes, Sims and Jefferies to electronic form.
