The whole museum is administered by a small group who are responsible for Accessions and Disposals. Each item whether donated or loaned is catalogued after being recorded in the Day Book register held in the General Office at the Railway's headquarters at Wansford.

In the past there had been a culture of accepting virtually anything that was of a railway interest. As part of the museum registration scheme this had to be firmly regulated with a collection area being firmly established. This embraces an area around the Railway's headquarters at Wansford, including the Great Eastern Railway, Great Northern Railway, Midland Railway, London & North Western Railway, Midland & Great Northern Joint and London & North Western & Great Northern Joint railways, their predecessors and successors.

This collecting strategy also includes Travelling Post Offices and ephemera, associated equipment, photographs and documentation, and Continental locomotives, rolling stock, ephemera, associated equipment, photographs and documentation.
