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


We regret that our venue, St. Margarets House, has decided to cancel all meetings until after May 1, so our April 6 meeting will not take place as of this writing, March 13. There are presently no known cases of the virus at St. Margarets, but given that there are many elderly residents in the complex, out of an abundance of caution they are unable to host meetings. Please watch this space as the time of our May meeting nears.

Next Meeting: Monday, May 4, 2020, 7-9 p.m., at 49 Fulton Street, Manhattan

Our meeting venue is St. Margaret's House, 49 Fulton Street, Meeting Room 3, on the ground floor to the left as you enter. The location on Fulton Street is just a short walk from the east end of the A/C Fulton St. subway station (use the downtown end of the train); the #2-3 Fulton St. stop is also very close, and the J-Z and #4-5 Fulton St. stops are in the same complex. Attendees will find the PATH World Trade Center stop within walking distance; also, the M15 Select Bus Service (1st and 2d Aves.) is adjacent, and the NYC Ferry Service, NY Waterways, and water taxi services Wall St. pier is within walking distance. Food is OK but alcohol is not allowed in the building.

Doors open at 7 p.m.; please do not expect to enter the room before 7 p.m.

Entertainment at the May meeting will be posted here as soon as it is available.

It may be necessary to cancel the May meeting, according to the coronoavirus epidemic situation and the decisions of the venue, St. Margarets House. Watch this space for updates.

Our meetings are open to all; there is no admission charge.
