Preserving the South Bay Railroad Heritage Since 1985.
The SBHRS has a fairly extensive library of railroad related materials. Our collection currently holds over 3500 books and over 500 videos. Although many of the books concentrate on the Northern California area, our library covers non-California railroads also. There are books and videos covering the many how-to facets of model railroading. Our collection of videos span most of the Great Model Railroad series and most of the western first class roads. Library materials are indexed in a database to make research easy.
Membership in the SBHRS allows you to check out most of our books and video tapes.
Donations of books and video tapes are always welcome and are tax deductible.
If you have any questions regarding the library or the books, videos, and artifacts in the library, send an email to the SBHRS Librarian.
