Welcome to the Joint Archives of the Great Northern Railway Historical Society (GNRHS) and Northern Pacific Railway Historical Association (NPRHA). Both organizations are dedicated to the preservation and history of these two railroads, predecessors to today's BNSF Railway. The Joint Archives physically reside at Jackson Street Roundhouse in St. Paul, MN and the Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive in Burien, WA, and comprise hundreds of thousands of files, drawings, books, photos and physical artifacts. These items are old, often delicate, and irreplaceable, so this website is dedicated to making as much material as possible available in digital form to members, researchers and the general public.
