The National Toy Train Library
The National Toy Train Library (NTTL) is the repository of extensive material about the toy train industry’s rich history—an excellent resource for Train Collectors Association (TCA) members and general researchers alike. The National Toy Train Museum and Library are located at the headquarters of the Train Collectors Association in Strasburg, PA. Our librarian is available to assist you during our regular hours but please call ahead before visiting the library. Or, browse our online catalog today!
National Toy Train Museum Highlight:
The National Toy Train Library creates an annual exhibit in the museum that highlights notable people, manufacturers, events, and more in the history of toy & model trains. The exhibit uses materials from the library’s collection including books, periodicals, photographs, advertisements, and other paper.
2024 Featured Library Exhibit
This years exhibit will focus on Ed Alexander and the formation of TCA. With the 2024 TCA National Convention planned for Lancaster we felt it appropriate to focus on why we are here, instead of any other location in the country. The Toy Train Museum is closed for exhibit updating and so is ours.
Stay tuned as we work on the display – you might get a sneak peak!
