About this Collection

This digital archive of fifteen artifacts display the California History Research Seminar (History 279) class research with the John Lloyd-Butler Railroadiana Collection during the spring of 2008. Their research demonstrates an ideal of railroad transportation as a “spatial concept.” More specifically, this “spatial concept” perceives the railcar not only as a means of transportation but a cultural space unto itself.
