Most of the plans and diagrams that accompany the incalculably important files of MT 39/241 (incalculably important, that is, to road enthusiasts) have been preserved and placed in this file where they can be held flat on mounting board.
Contents of note
- Maps of the UK at various scales, and with close-ups of most major cities, showing the numbering scheme as it was originally conceived. Includes some maps of Scotland without zone 9.
- Diagrams of short multiplexes (numbers running concurrently), despite the oft-held belief that no multiplexes occurred in the original numbering system.
- Proposed line of the original A180 Durham Coast Road - hardly ever mentioned on SABRE
- MT 39/241 CLASSIFICATION: Numbering system (1921-1949)
