Our Chapter was founded in late 2014 as not only a local subdivision of the PRRT&HS, but also as a joint effort of members from the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum and the Railroad Museum of Long Island to fundraise for the preservation of each museum’s equipment, many pieces of which are directly linked the era of Pennsy ownership. We hold four meetings annually, two at each museum. Meetings are generally held on the first Sundays of February, May, August, and November. Our meetings feature presentations from our members on the history of the LIRR as well as the PRR in general, discussion of the current events of related preservation projects, and the chance for our members to physically see the progress of such efforts. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
