Harrisburg Chapter NRHS

Harrisburg, PA - The Harrisburg Chapter is one of over 160 local chapters of the National Railway Historical Society. The chapter received its charter from the NRHS in 1959 and was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization in 1971. The more than 200 members are dedicated to the preservation of rail artifacts and to the documentation of railroad history. The Harrisburg Chapter is a charter member of the Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in the Jeffersonian category, a member of Historic Harrisburg Association, and a member of Association of Tourist Railroads and Railway Museums.

Two completed capital projects are the restorations of ex-PRR GG1 4859, the very first GG1 to bring a revenue train into Harrisburg in 1938, and ex-PRR N6b caboose 980016. Both pieces of rolling stock are on permanent display at the Harrisburg Transportation Center.
