Every Railroad has a Story to Tell


   The definition of the word "Erstwhile" in Erstwhile Publications can mean former or what had once been, in a historical context. But the acronym "ERST" in Erstwhile Publications also stands for "Every Railroad has a Story to Tell".

   Erstwhile's goal is to exploit a niche for lesser known but interesting railroads that have faded into the past and also provide an update on what's left, successor operations and preservation efforts. Limited edition, quality railroad publications that do not meet larger production run requirements of bigger publishing houses are our mission. Prospective authors are urged to contact us at
