How about if I have a research question?
We get lots of questions about railroad history, and are happy to try to help. Because of the heavy load of questions, keep the following in mind: Questions requiring research should be sent to us by US Mail. Thoughtful questions reflecting scholarly or important need will receive special attention. In some cases where extensive time is required, you may be contacted regarding the cost of such services.
  • We can not prepare research reports for students.
  • Our library and archives are available to serious researchers upon advance request (see Library and Archives section). All research is conducted under controlled conditions.
  • Simple questions asking if we have a particular photo or some general information about a railroad or piece of equipment can be handled by E-mail. If you write us by US mail, include an E-mail address in your letter so we can expedite a response if appropriate.
