Railtrack Weekly & Periodical Notices
Digital Archive

Most documents in the digital archive are in PDF format. However, some larger files may be in JPG, PDF, PNG or TIF format. The files are supplied strictly “As Is”. The entries in each list will make it clear what is available to download and what is only available by other means.

Please do not pass copies of the files around, instead ask interested persons to contact the Society to obtain their own copy. In terms of copyright, British Railways (Residuary) Ltd confirmed to the Society that it was 'not interested' in historical documents that had outlived their operational usefulness and this line seems to have been followed by Railtrack and now Network Rail, as may be evidenced by the quantity of modern material that has entered the public domain through eBay and other auction houses and second hand bookstalls. Similar advice has been received from London Underground in respect of material obtained lawfully from their staff or is already in the public domain.

If there is a download link in the left hand column, the notice concerned may be downloaded free of charge but bear in mind that the file may not contain all the items listed. Otherwise, if there is a “Members' Download” entry present in the item description, then Members (only) may download a copy of the file. If both links are present then Members will sometimes find additional information or a cleaner copy is available by using the “Members' Download” link.

Members will find the information needed to Log-in in the Announcements section of the Society's Forum. Be aware that the passwords will change from time to time and without warning. Non-members will need to JOIN the SRS first and then register for the Forum.

Notices flagged with an asterisk (*) are not included in the free download file.

Year sets start in late March each year and run until the equivalent date in the following year. During Railtrack's period of tenure a switch was made to distributing the notices in electronic form. This made it it possible to include pictures and colour. The process of change started with some zones in 1996 and the rest variously following in 1997 and 1998.


Zones


East Anglia Zone

Continued from British Railways Anglia Region.

Anglia Zone initially issued a series of weekly notices, each covering a sub-set of the Anglia Zone lines.

Great Western Zone

K2D notices: Part 1 is sometimes single sided to facilitate amending loose leaf publications. The 'blank' pages were included in the page number sequence. These blank pages have not been scanned with the result that alternate page numbers in Section 1 of the relevant notices are not usually visible in the digital copy. Some later editions retained the blank pages but did not number them, again the blanks have not been scanned.

Midland Zone

From week 19 of 1997 the Midland Zone commenced issuing CSEs in electronic format. Initially this was alongside the paper copies. From the same issue the Weekly Engineering Notice (WEN) ceased publication with some of the detail being transferred to the Weekly Operating Notice (WON) and the residue to an auxiliary document detailing PICOP and Engineering train arrangements. Some information ceased to be included at all - see the WON for week 18 that year.
