The Continental Railway Journal was published by the Continental Railway Circle for over 50 years from 1962 until 2013 when it merged with Locomotives International.  It was edited by Lance King and regularly reported on at least 30 countries. The back issues therefore provide a valuable reference source for foreign railway developments over the period. 

From 1962 until 1969 The Continental Railway Journal was published in duplicated form with very few illustrations.  Very few copies of this original series are available in reasonable condition.
