Gazette Archive

The Mid-Continent Railway Gazette is the official member magazine of Mid-Continent Railway Historical Society. Its format and publishing frequency varied over the years, but its pages contain contemporary accounts of over 50 years of Mid-Continent’s own history as well as articles on historical railroads, restoration updates, and more!

In 2017, museum volunteers began an effort to digitize the museum’s Gazette collection and process it using optical character recognition (OCR) software to make the text of each issue easily searchable and freely available online. Only a small portion of the collection is currently digitized and available below. To volunteer to assist with this effort, contact Jeffrey Lentz at the Mid-Continent office.

Note: Issues released in the last three years and the expanded special issues are not made available here. Print copies of those issues can be purchased by contacting the museum office.
