National Railway Historical Society

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.
