The National Railway Historical
In 1935 a group of rail historians with an interest in
preserving what had passed and what lay ahead, formed the National Railway
Historical Society. They recognized the need to preserve and promote
railroading nationwide. This need still exists- and you can be a part of the
effort by joining the Connecticut Eastern Chapter. From fewer than 40 persons
the NRHS has grown to include over 20,000 men and women of all ages and
professions in every state and many foreign countries, making it the nation's
largest rail historical society.
The Connecticut Eastern
The Connecticut Eastern Chapter of the National
Railway Historical Society is dedicated to preserving historical materials of
railway transportation. We are a non-profit organization interested in
collecting railroad memorabilia, researching the history of local railroads,
establishing a railroad museum, preserving railroad artifacts, railroad
modeling, and educating the public about railroads and railroad safety.
The members of the Connecticut Eastern Chapter are
individuals who have a common interest in railroading. The membership is
composed of all kinds of people with diverse professions, backgrounds, talents
and skills, including children*. Everyone has something they can offer. If you
like railroading of any kind, we are the group you are looking for.
*Children must be supervised by an adult 18 years or older.
