Our library contains more than 4,000 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 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 library 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.
