Custodial History

These plans were created by the various predecessor companies to British Rail. They came together under the jurisdiction of British Rail and were later held by the British Railways Board Record Centre. This itself closed in 2002 and its holdings were sorted and passed to the National Archives, to museums and to local record offices. Those relating to the old county of Flintshire were received by Flintshire Record Office.
