Railway Heritage Committee
The Railway Heritage Committee (RHC) was set up in the 1990s following the Privatisation of British Rail in the United Kingdom in the 1990s. Its purpose was to identify and designate railway records and artefacts which were historically significant for the British railway system and which were worthy of permanent preservation and being kept securely.
The RHC was an executive non-departmental public body of the Department for Transport. The committee was abolished in 2013 but its powers were transferred to a new Railway Heritage Designation Advisory Board reporting to the Board of Trustees of the Science Museum, London from 1 April 2013.
