The New York Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society meets on the first Thursday of each month, except for July and August when we do not meet.

Next Meeting: November 2: Bruce Russell: Historic Super-8 Movies!

Our next meeting will be Thursday, November 2, at the Edgar Cayce Institute, 7th Floor, 153 W. 27 Street, New York, N.Y.

The doors open at 6:00 p.m.; business/social meeting at 6:30, entertainment 7:00-9:00. There are several doors on 27 St. numbered 153; the one you want is an entrance lobby, with "153" prominently displayed over the entrance. Dial 33 on the keypad next to the door, tell them you're there for the NRHS meeting, and Cayce Institute staff will buzz you in. Coffee and tea are available at the meetings ($1 donation suggested); but otherwise, we regret that Cayce Institute does not permit other food to be consumed on the premises. Any problems, call 347-564-3173, a cell phone which will be in the room. Our meetings are open to all; there is no admission charge.

Entertainment at the November meeting will be by long-time Chapter member Bruce Russell, who will present a selection of Super-8 films from his collection of movies Bruce has taken from years ago. We'll post detailed information as soon as we hear from Bruce just what he has selected. Bruce's library includes many transit and rail topics from years ago.

December meeting SECOND Thursday!

Due to venue availability, our December meeting and traditional holiday party will be December 14, 2017, not the usual first Thursday. Mark your calendar! The Cayce Institute has graciously waived their "no food" policy for this holiday party meeting.
