Publication History

Railroads Illustrated was initially launched under the name CTC Board in 1974 by Hundman Publishing. The name CTC Board was derived from Centralized Traffic Control, a signifying element of the railroads system.

In 2005, it underwent a branding change, taking on its current name, in an attempt to articulate more clearly the magazine's photographic focus. The magazine, now published by White River Productions, has grown to become a respected and indispensable resource for railroading enthusiasts and professionals alike.{{Categories}}
