Archives Wish List
Like our rail car collection, the contents of our archives also reflect our focused interest in the railroads of Southern California . The Museum's Collection Policy defines five "focus companies"; the major railroads and transit companies which served Southern California; the Pacific Electric, Los Angeles Railway, Santa Fe , Southern Pacific and Union Pacific railroads, as well as predecessor and related companies.
OERM actively seeks photographs, records, drawings, books, timetables, advertisements and ephemeral materials from our focus companies. Of particular interest are items pertaining to operations in Southern California. Contact the Chair, Education & Exhibits for additional details.
We also have an ongoing interest in primary materials, such as the following periodicals, from the railroad industry. We also have duplicates available for trade.
Periodicals Wish List
Materials we do not collect:
Due to space constraints, we are also NOT in need of loose "railfan" and model railroad type magazines. We do maintain a complete set, but in general do not seek additional copies.
