      This Wisconsin Labelography page lists every Mountain Railroad Records 1973-1987 release I have seen or ever heard of. Only two known 45 rpm records, MR-107 and SR-253, were released on this label. One cassette, MRC-52671, was listed in a Schwann Catalog (date unknown), but I have never seen a copy of it. No CD's were ever released on this label. Nothing is known about why it went out of business. Seven different addresses for this label appeared on releases. For the Rockford, IL, Loves Park, IL, Cambridge, WI and Madison, WI addresses and which album had which address, see the Mountain Railroad Records Discography. Please write if you can fill in any of the missing information on this page, release dates, missing or incorrect titles, etc.

      Titles are listed in Catalog Number order.
105 -- 107 -- 253 -- 293 -- 670 -- 8001 - 8006 -- 52671 - 52672 -- 52773 - 52799 -- 82819
