The contracts were collated in 1933 by Muniments from the Metropolitan Railway Muniment Office and individual sections within Underground Electric Railway Limited. Prior to the establishment of the London Transport Archive Service in 1992, London Transport Muniments transferred records to London Transport Museum. These were transferred from London Transport Museum on 19 July 1992 to London Transport Group Archive.
