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, October 4, 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 October 4 meeting.

Entertainment for the September meeting will be presented by New York Chapter National NRHS Representative Cora Sowa, and will focus on Nashville, Tennessee, particularly around the 2017 NRHS National Convention in Nashville. Included will be excursions on the Tennessee Central Railroad and on My Old Kentucky Lunch Train. Also included will be Cora's visit to Nashville's old passenger station and to Centennial Park, home of Nashville's replica of the Parthenon, and where steam locomotive #576 is on static display. The events in Cora's show took place in four states: Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, and Alabama.
