Featured This Month: Railroads
The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad (CB&Q) was one of the largest and most significant railroads in the United States, controlling transportation over much of the nation between the Rockies and the Mississippi River. This gallery features images of materials from the CB&Q Archives - letters, reports, photographs, maps, drawings, posters, and more - relating to these and other subject areas and topics. It is intended to introduce researchers to the collection’s diverse content and to direct them to relevant materials via links to the online inventory. Essentially, the gallery serves as a visual subject index to the records.
