The New York Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society meets monthly except for July and August. Our regular meeting date is the first Monday of each month, September through June.

NEXT MEETING: Monday, February 7, 7:30 p.m.

Coronavirus restrictions remain in effect in New York City, so our regular meeting venue, St. Margaret's House, remains unavailable.

We have held successful "virtual" meetings during the COVID pandemic using the popular Zoom application, and we will be doing this again for our December 6 meeting.

This location offers a wide variety of up to 100 Metra Electric and Amtrak passenger and IC, UP, and CN freight moves each day . Motive power includes electric Highliners, Amtrak Genesis, and GP and SW freight units.
