Corporate Identity Manual

The British Rail Corporate Identity Manual comprised four volumes, using the MULT-O 23-ring binder system. The four binders were issued in three installments: Binder 1 (not numbered), issued in July 1965, contained information on Basic Elements (symbol, logotype, lettering and colour). Binder 2, issued in November 1966, contained guidance on Printed Publicity plus some additional sheets for insertion into Binder 1, and future insertion into Binders 3 and 4, which were issued together in April 1970, together with additional sheets for the first two binders. Binders 3 and 4 contained information on architecture and signposting, rolling stock, lineside equipment, road vehicles, ships, liner trains, uniforms, stationery, miscellaneous and appendices (including an index) although two sections were ultimately to remain empty.
