BBCRC library in reefer car

Welcome to the BBCRC's comprehensive online bibliography of almost 500 listings on railroading, freighthopping, and nomadic rail culture. We will be trying to keep these listings updated on a regular basis. If you know of additional materials you think we should list, or if you have corrections, please let us know. Try to provide as much detail as possible and follow the same general format we have used for listings here. For some of the listings we have a few sentences of description attached. If you want to add descriptive comments to the many entries that we don't yet have, email them to us at "".

This bibliography is constantly being updated and improved and it represents a lot of original research.
