Copy Service There is a photocopy service available from this Index. You will see an 'Add to Cart' tickbox option on the search results page(s).

The copies are A3 size and each entry is contained on one line (as in a register). Where more than one name appears in the index with the same page number you need only order one entry as the other names will also appear on this copy.

InformationSpecial Offer! As part of your order, for an additional fee, we will also check the NRS 12922, Railway Personal History Cards (which covers employees born before 1900 and who were in employment from 1910 onwards) to see if there is a record for the person(s) you have located in the Nominal Roll.
This is a non-refundable cost whether or not we find a Railway Card. Where a card(s) is located we will copy and include it with the rest of your order.

If you do not find an entry in the Nominal Roll, you can still take advantage of the Railway History Card Copy Service.
