The Midland Railway Timetable Finding Aid lists the public and working timetables of the Midland Railway and its constituent companies held by three organisations where public access is allowed to their collections. The two principal constituents are, on the mainland, the London, Tilbury & Southend Railway (LT&SR) that was absorbed with effect from 7 August 1912 and, in Northern Ireland, the Belfast & Northern Counties Railway (B&NCR) that was absorbed on 1 July 1903. Timetables issued by Joint Lines in which the Midland Railway had an interest are not included in this document.
