Welcome to the website of the RCAI
The Railroadiana Collectors Association, Incorporated.
Founded in 1971, RCAI promotes fellowship and scholarship among collectors of the artifacts of railroad
history. Many specialize in a particular type of artifact such as locks and keys, dining car china, timetables,
or hardware. Others concentrate on particular railroads or the roads that served a particular region. All enjoy
the rich and colorful history of railroading and strive to preserve this great legacy through conserving the
artifacts that represent it.
