Death Valley Railroad Memorabilia Value Guide

The Death Valley Railroad started operations in 1914 and stopped service in 1931 for a total period of operations of 17 years.

Railroads like Death Valley Railroad that were started after 1900 will not have as many valuable collectibles or antiques as older lines. Railroads from this period tend to have more items left so collectors have a much easier time finding items like passes, timetables, and manuals. The types of items that will be valuable are typically unique or significant items like builder's plates, daters, sealers, signs, and rarer lanterns.

Death Valley Railroad only operated in 1 state which is indicative of smaller lines, or in some cases lines in larger states. Many one state railroads are short line railroads that didn't have large areas of coverage or large promotional budgets so items from them are likely to be somewhat rare and could be worth more if the railroad didn't exist for long or if it didn't produce many collectible items.
