Robert W. Richardson Railroad Library


Built in 1997, the Robert W. Richardson Railroad Library, designed to look like a small town depot, contains one of the most comprehensive railroad reference libraries in the United States. From timetables to employee records, photographs to engineering documents, maps to books, it offers a wealth of information on railroads. The Library’s collection focuses on railroads in the Rocky Mountain region and American West, but in some cases the collection’s scope is national or even international. The Library is open to visitors of the Museum; patrons are also welcome to write, call, or email the Library with questions or for further information on our holdings.
