Railroads: Sources for Historical Research

Subscription Databases

Depending on your area of research, there are many databases that the Library subscribes to that may be of interest. Many of them are archives of newspapers and their advertisements from around the country can be helpful in finding information of a more regional nature.

The subscription resources marked with a padlock are available to researchers on-site at the Library of Congress. If you are unable to visit the Library, you may be able to access these resources through your local public or academic library.
