The national organization of the NRHS is involved in a wide variety of projects supporting rail preservation, restoration, education, and operations. In addition, many chapters are involved in local projects.
NRHS is partnering with Railway Age and Railway Track & Structures magazines to honor a North American railroad for an outstanding railroad preservation project. NRHS members and Railway Age and RT&S subscribers are invited to nominate a project.
Alco Historic Photos
AHP is the custodian of a collection of almost 300,000 photographic negatives and about 10,000 drawings and documents relating to the ACO and its successor ALCO Products.
Since 1991, the National Railway Historical Society has been giving away annual matching grants for projects which preserve, research, educate, or publish railway history.
Historic Plaque Program
This program formally recognizes landmarks in Railroad History by placing a bronze plaque at/on the site.
The National Railway Historical Society introduces our Photo Gallery, beginning with a collection of over 1,000 photos. As photos are digitally scanned and accurately documented, they are added to the collection. As you’ll see, the Gallery is searchable by category.
