Directory of Information
Much information previously available to members or others in print format is available on our web sites, thereby reducing printing and mailing costs and allowing more frequent updating.
We encourage those who were accustomed to finding this information in the old printed Directory of Information to use the menu system or search system of this site to locate it. Much of it is under the main menu button "About TCA" above.
Members wishing to search for other members now have two ways of finding it:
Accessing the Online TCA Membership List
Now, TCA members who are logged in to traincollectors.org may search for fellow members by their name, location, or TCA member number. This system reflects the TCA membership database in real-time.
There are two ways to do this on that site:
- Enter the member's name or TCA number in the Site Search box on the left side of any page of traincollectors.org.
- Click on the Member Search button on the main menu of any page there.
Accessing TCA Membership Directory (PDFs)
TCA members may now view certain lists of the Membership Directory online, sorted by name, location, or member number. To protect privacy rights, access to this section requires you to log in.
- Go here to log in to the Directory Page, then follow the additional instructions there to view the PDFs. Note that these lists are not as current as the online search results explained above. They may not be printed out.
NOTE: The official policy regarding membership information is as follows:
Printed directories are no longer issued in order to save money and protect privacy. Any previously issued printed directories of membership information are not to be reproduced without the express permission of the National Business Office. Each member is responsible for the safe disposal of old directories in order to protect the membership from unauthorized use.
Use of the contents of any such listings, whether obtained in print or electronically, for mailings shall be by the express consent of the Board of Directors only. Under no circumstances is any directory to be sold, traded, or provided to a non-TCA member. Any unauthorized use may result in loss of membership.
