The "David Ray" Study Centre

The Study Centre was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund after being promoted by a small but dedicated group of NVR members.

The purpose of this building is allow the Railway’s Educational Department to promote the organisation as a learning tool for school aged children.   However, its use is not solely confined to children and education, being available to the wider community for meetings, presentations, corporate use, seminars and most importantly to allow the Railway’s museum team to display some of its many artefacts, photographs and archives.
