The collection consists of letters, documents and drawings pertaining to various railroads, particularly those in Australia and Great Britain.

Specific railways represented in the collection include: Victorian Railways (Australia), the Midland Great Western Company (Ireland), the Norwich and Spalding Railway (England), the Southampton, Manchester, and Oxford Junction Railway (England), the Edinburgh, Glasgow and Leith Railway (Scotland), and the Fond Du Lac of Lake Superior Railway (U.S.).

The collection also contains materials related to the activities of the civil engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel from 1842-1851; the work of Sir John Rennie on the projected Northern Railway; the work of John Duncan, Superintendent of Works for the East India Railroad Company, 1845-47; the civil engineer Thomas Sopwith's work on railroads from about 1835-1870; bridges and other structures planned for the London and Brigmingham Railway as drawn in watercolor by the civil engineer Robert Stephenson; the building of a bridge over the Seine at Maisons for the Paris and Rouen Railway; and a right-of-way dispute between a property owner in Leeds and the Leeds and Bradford Railway.
