Photographs, a collection of approximately 21,000 silver gelatin glass negatives, predominantly 8½ x 6½ in, also 6½ x 4¾ ins to 26 x 20 ins. Featuring the operations of the Midland Railway, London Midland & Scottish Railway and British Railways (London Midland Region) and covering the construction and repair of locomotives and carriages, together with stations, goods depots, civil engineering, road vehicles, people, places, publicity and events, c1885 to 1961. The work of official photographers based at Derby Works. Complete with sixteen handwritten registers. DY36 to DY46435 (incomplete).

The Derby Works Collection of photographs contains approximately 21,000 silver gelatin glass negatives. The collection features the operations of the Midland Railway, London Midland & Scottish Railway and British Railways (London Midland Region) and covers the construction and repair of locomotives and carriages, together with stations, goods depots, civil engineering, road vehicles, people, places, publicity and events, c1885 to 1961.

The first photographer, Thomas Scotton, was employed at the works in 1882, and with his successors produced an extensive archive.

Derby Locomotive Works was constructed in 1840 for the North Midland Railway, and in the years that followed 2995 steam engines were built there for the Midland Railway, London Midland & Scottish Railway, and British Railways. Derby produced diesels from 1934 onwards, and in 1947 built Britain's first main line diesel locomotives, so when construction of steam engines ended work was concentrated on diesels and diesel electrics. Derby Carriage and Wagon Works opened in 1876, and by the end of the century was producing eight carriages and 180 new wagons per week, whilst also repairing existing stock. Based at the Litchurch Lane site, the works had facilities to build vehicles from the basic raw materials to the finished article, and during the Second World War also produced aeroplane wings.
