About Our Chapter
The Roanoke Chapter, NRHS has been active in rail preservation, maintaining a fleet of passenger cars and diesel locomotives, and sponsoring rail excursions for over forty years. We take pride in the reputation that we have established as a professional operator through the years. We work together with three other organizations in the Roanoke Valley, the Virginia Museum of Transportation, the O. Winston Link Museum, and the Norfolk & Western Historical Society, all the while promoting the Roanoke Valley as a rail destination. Indeed, these groups, along with the Blue Ridge Chapter and the C&OHS, have had the Commonwealth of Virginia designate our area as Virginia’s Rail Heritage Region. We welcome anyone with an interest in any facet of railroading.
