Advanced Search

This page offers a wide variety of ways for you to search for topics of interest to you in the archive. Under "Field," the pull-down menus add to the possibilities. If you want to find a photographer's body of work, search for his or her name. For example, to see photographs from Richard Neumiller's "Age of Streamliners" slide show, you should search by creator (Neumiller) or alternative title (Age of Streamliners). For all the images of your favorite railroad, use the "depicted railroad" field.

There are many ways to use the archive for research or pleasure. You can search the fields below in two ways. On the left, use drop-down menus to select different topics. On the right, type in topics of interest in appropriate fields. Let us know what you think of the search functions. For details, check out the Help Page.
