How it all started.

During the year 2001, the New Opportunities Fund (NOF) requested applications for funds to create a series of Internet-based multi-medium educational resources, focusing on life-long learning.

Three organisations submitted bids for a grant to digitise, and make available on the Internet, collections of images and objects relating to great transport undertakings.

NOF suggested a consortium be formed, maximising resources and producing a cohesive group of web-sites. The links below explain more about each partner in the consortium.

Or follow the links to the right to see more about how the overall project developed and the people involved.
