NRHS Promontory Utah Chapter


About Our Chapter

Promotory Utah

The Promontory Chapter of the NRHS was established in 1966. At present the chapter owns a former Union Pacific passenger car is used for meetings during the Summer months. It is located on a siding which is located approximately at 1202 West North Temple, in Salt Lake City, UT. This asset also houses the chapter’s library with hundreds of books and VHS tapes for the membership to enjoy.

The Chapter continues to assist other Railroad groups and museums with the restoration and preservation of railroad rolling stock. Our most recent restorations are a caboose painted in Denver Rio Grande paint scheme. This piece of equipment was sent to the Heber Valley R.R. Two locomotives, a GP35 which will be restored to Western Pacific paint scheme, and a GP30 that will be painted in Denver Rio Grande paint scheme. The GP35 will be housed at the Ogden City’s Union Pacific Station. The other locomotive’s new home will be announced in the future.

Other activities which the Chapter members and their families enjoy are rail trips to out of state rail and trolley museums.
