  • Welcome to the official website of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. The Chapter was chartered in 1970 as the New Hope Chapter by the volunteers operating the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad. As membership grew, the chapter moved to Yardley, Pennsylvania and changed its name to the Delaware Valley Chapter. Another move brought the chapter to its current location in Morrisville, Pennsylvania.

    General Chapter Membership Meeting

    Montgomery County Trolleys! - Mike Szilagyi, author of a recently published Arcadia Publishing book of the same title, will present a program about the 140 miles of trolley lines that once served Montgomery County. A wide array of trolley cars once rolled over Montgomery County rails, from quaint open streetcars to sleek 80 mile an hour trolleys. Taking the trolley was a convenient, affordable option for those traveling and commuting within the county, to and from nearby Philadelphia, and points beyond.
