About the Library

Founded in 1994, the Library was established to collect, preserve and make available to the public, materials that document the history of rail transportation in Canada. Materials focusing on the railways surrounding the Ottawa area are of particular interest. The Library has a significant collection of books, magazines, photographs, slides, plans, and archival materials of Ottawa area railway-related organisations. The objective is to provide a comprehensive research base for those seeking information about Canadian railways.

The Library is a federally-incorporated not-for-profit organization, registered as a charitable organization. Library Memberships and Donations to the Library are eligible for receipts for Canadian income tax purposes.
