New York - Oyster Bay Railroad Museum

The mission of the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum (OBRM) is to heighten public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the railroad's role in our heritage, and to increase public understanding of rail technology and its impact on Long Island life. The OBRM will collect, preserve, and interpret the railroad heritage of Long Island for future generations.

In October 1990, a dedicated group of volunteers began to clean and paint steam Locomotive #35, located in Mitchell Field and which had fallen victim to vandalism. This enthusiastic group persevered in their efforts and, in time, became known as the Locomotive #35 Restoration Committee, a volunteer group under the jurisdiction of the Nassau County Parks Department.

In 2006, the group reincorporated as the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum, a 501c-3 educational, not-for-profit corporation. With a new name that better reflected its true mission, the organization continued to strive toward the formation of a first class railroad museum in the hamlet of Oyster Bay.
