Pennsylvania Railroad Documentation Directory

Official Pennsylvania Railroad publications can be an invaluable resource for research -- but where can they be found? This directory is an effort to aid research by showing what documents (original or reproductions) are available in the collections of Pennsy fans.

If you have any official Pennsylvania Railroad documents and would like to be included in the effort, please e-mail me at the address at the bottom of the page. Please include the complete document titles and dates of your material.

Note to PRR-Talk members: If you e-mail a question to a document holder, please CC it to the list. We want to know, too!
