All aboard for merry Christmas.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from the National Toy Train Library!

By Lori Nyce, TCA Librarian                             Winter 2018

Lori Nyce.

Editor's Note: Christmas kudos to Lori for catching the toy train spirit of the season - with an international flavor!

I have relatives who enjoy collecting postcards, and I know they would love the postcards that are part of the National Toy Train Library's collection. The library has a number of postcards in its collection, and I've picked out a few holiday ones to share with you.

These postcards, photographs, and more have been scanned and are accessible in the library's online catalog.  They're part of the treasury of toy trains that we safeguard and promote year around, but what better time to bring them out than Christmas? It's the toy train way!

Go to the online catalog here to visit the photo section, and use the keyword "postcard" to limit your search.  I'll bet  you'll find some other great scenes too!

Have a reference question?   Contact the library at (717) 687-8623, ext. 108 or email  

Here are a few postcards from around the world featuring trains:
