About Us

For so many people, trains—steam, diesel and electric—have always held a special fascination.

Since the transcontinental railroad was completed in 1869 at Promontory Point, Utah, railroads have played a major role in the development and growth of the United States.

The unique sights and sounds of the steam locomotive have added color and action to railroading since before the turn of the century.

Today, children and adults alike enjoy an interest in railfanning and model railroading, and train shows, train conventions and rail museums have recorded large numbers of attendees.

Railroading is our main interest, too, here at Heimburger House. Our business is founded on publishing and offering the best railroad books available. They must be of high quality and of a particular subject matter that appeals to our customers.

Additionally, we’ve added new titles that we think you’ll enjoy, that are transportation related in some way. Our new children’s line of railroad books has also been extremely popular.

If you’re a regular customer of ours or a new customer, welcome to the exciting world of railroading! We hope to serve you soon!
