The collection consists of drawings relating to repair work done to carriages and wagons, details of steam cranes and various civil engineering installations on the Midland and Great Northern Railway network. A register, which records all the drawings made at the Melton Constable Works and the surviving drawings from those that were originally made there. They do not include any locomotive drawings as these were presumably absorbed into the system used by the Stratford Works as part of the London and North Eastern Railway in 1936. They represent only a fraction of the total output from the Melton Constable Works, the full output is detailed in the drawing register.

A full listing can be found on the National Railway Museum website under 'Drawing Lists' at https://www.railwaymuseum.org.uk/research-and-archive/further-resources/catalogues.
