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. However, for December and January we will be meeting on the second Monday.



Pending arrangements to resume in-person meeting, we will continue to meet virtually for the time being.

Entertainment at the December 12 Zoom meeting will be by Chapter National Director Cora Sowa, and will be Part II of her transcontinental trip by private railroad car from New York to Orange County, California in May, 2022, to attend the NRHS National Convention. This presentation will cover the trips made during the convnetion, including the San Diego Model Railroad Museum, the Southern California Railway Museum (formerly Orange Empire Railway Museum), a behind-the-scenes tour of the Knott's Berry Farm Narrow-Gauge Railway, the Nethercutt Collection in Sylmar, California, Travel Town at Griffith Park, and Walt Disney's Carolwood Barn backyard railroad. On her return private-car trip to New York, Cora will visit Chicago, in search of relics of a lost Illinois Central Railroad rail yard.
