The National Railway Historical Society was founded
in 1935 and incorporated as a non-profit, educational organization in Maryland
in 1937. The primary purpose of the Society is to preserve historical material
and information pertaining to railroad transportation, to issue publications
relating to the subject, and to encourage the use of rail transportation.
The Society has more than 15,000 members and over 174 Chapters. The Society publishes a bimonthly journal, The National Railway Bulletin, containing articles of historical, educational, and topical subjects of railroad interest. A subscription to this journal is included with all Regular and Associate memberships. Membership is open to all persons sixteen years of age and older who are interested in railroads and their history. Join the NRHS today!
