When the Midland Railway introduced their system of shed codes in 1898, Barrow Hill was given the code M24. 24 is an important number to us in other respects too.  The Roundhouse has 24 roads (tracks leading off the turntable) and it operated 24 hours a day.  From the 1000's of items in our archive collection, we have selected 24 items to really explore.  Click on an object on our archive shelves or use the drop down tabs and discover more.


This is going to take some time to get all of the items researched so keep calling back...
