The material consists largely of proposal drawings for locomotives. It includes some valuable items previously thought lost e.g. the 'SuperGarratt' and designs for American locomotives - none of which were put into production. There are also ledgers from the Drawing Office and other company documents, plus original artwork and mock-ups from the Beyer, Peacock Quarterly Review (a company magazine).
The archive consists of around 200 items.
