Horseshoe Curve Chapter NRHS

Altoona, PA - The Horseshoe Curve Chapter, National Railway Historical Society (NRHS), is a tax exempt, non-profit organization which engages in projects to preserve and maintain historical equipment and information relating to the rail transportation industry, particularly as it applies to Central Pennsylvania.

The Horseshoe Curve Chapter, had its beginnings at the time the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) ceased to exist & when many of the PRR’s historical sites in the Altoona Area were being dismantled. Although many local facilities were lost, the Horseshoe Curve Chapter, of the NRHS, has always strived to preserve the heritage of our fore bearers who settled here. We are also proud to have played an instrumental role in the local heritage awareness and to help found and organize the Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum as well as acquire/fund major Museum acquisitions.

The Chapter owns and operates rail passenger equipment as well as restores rolling stock. We support all preservation projects of the Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum. A periodic newsletter, an annual chapter picnic, and other special events are regular activities.
