The Center for Railroad Photography & Art is a nonprofit arts organization that preserves and presents visually and historically significant images of railroading. This focus on visual representations sets the Center apart from most other historical and preservation organizations. It does not maintain its own museum space but instead collaborates with other institutions. It is committed to preserving Railroad Heritage in all its facets, and works with photographers, writers, and historians across the country to interpret the intersection of railroads, art, and culture. It maintains an office in Madison, Wisconsin, and an archive at Lake Forest College in Illinois. The Center, incorporated in 1997 in Wisconsin, has received 501(c)3 status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. It publishes Railroad Heritage magazine and is the creator of, an Internet archive of significant images with extensive explanatory texts.
