About the Museum
The Museum of Railway Timetables is a virtual exhibit of Amtrak® passenger rail service through schedules and timetables issued since service began on May 1, 1971.
Due to the effort involved in capturing digital images of printed material, new exhibits are made available as time permits. We maintain a large private collection of timetable materials. Timetables are presented in their original format, often highlighting imperfections in printing of original copies. If pages appear crooked, this is simply an artifact of the original print. We have attempted to compensate for this in the interest of readability, but it is not always possible.
Note that all timetables from Fall 2003 to present were archived directly from source files provided by the printing press. We plan to adjust their format to be more consistent with earlier exhibits.
Curator Anthony Rizos was born and raised in the Mojave Desert, moved to Boston for college, and currently resides in Baltimore. Anthony holds bachelor's and master's degrees in urban planning, with a focus on transportation, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Archivist Thomas Bedwell, a native of Kentucky, is married with two daughters and five grandchildren. Since retiring from a 35-year career in the insurance industry, he has been exploring his lifelong interest in passenger trains with frequent rides on Amtrak. Tom also serves as a Manager and Moderator of the Amtrak Unlimited Discussion Forum. Tom grew up near the L&N mainline and watched their streamliners go by for many years as a child.
Many thanks to Amtrak and our user community for their support.
