NRM Library book classification scheme

The books in Search Engine are arranged on the shelves in an alpha-numerical system based on the classification scheme devised by railway librarian George Ottley. Each book is given a shelf-mark which places it under one of the below categories. Following on from the classification is a number, which tells you where the book sits in its section.

For example, Andrew Roden's Flying Scotsman : the extraordinary story of the world's most famous train has a shelf-mark of E8F/142. E8F is the section on 'Miscellaneous works on British locomotives' and 142 means it's the 142nd book in this section.
