Library and Archives


Our Library and Archives contains more than 4,500 cataloged items including books, magazines, Official Guides, timetables, charts, rule books, operation and maintenance manuals, photographs, slides, postcards, maps, brochures and other railroad related ephemera.
The collection includes items from railroads around the country, with an emphasis on Florida and the Southeast.

The Library and Archives is open to researchers and historians by appointment only. Items cannot be checked out or leave the building.
Tables and chairs are available for use in the adjacent meeting room.

The facility is climate and humidity-controlled and equipped with a clean agent fire suppression system.
The museum buildings feature automatic fire suppression thanks to our partnership with the City of Winter Garden.

Many items in the collection were donated by railroaders, railfans or their families.
Donations are appreciated and donors will receive a letter documenting their gift to the Central Florida Railway Historical Society, Inc. Contact us for details on making a donation to the Library and Archives, or to our Museum Collection.
