About this collection

The expansion of railroads in the 19th century was concomitant with an expansion of communications in the periodical literature that gave rise to such publications as American Railroad Journal and Mechanics Magazine. This collection contains these and other journals that contain a wealth of information pertaining to the growth of railroads in the United States. They vividly illustrate the evolution of railroad technology in words and images. The Railroad Journals collection is part of the online exhibition The Transcontinental Railroad: A History of Railroad Technology, which was made possible by BNSF Railway.
