Railway Historical Society of Northern New York

Recommended Posts

For about a century, the railroad was a part of not only economic growth and stability, but a window on the world. As old tracks and rail facilities are used less and less in many rural areas, volunteers get together and ensure they do not fade from memory.

 

That's what happened in Croghan, New York, as the members of the Railroad Historical Society of Northern New York (RHSNNY) have converted the old train depot in Croghan, NY into a museum teeming with artifacts of life in the old days. The Croghan Depot once served the Lowville-Beaver River Railway (L&BRR).

 

The Railroad Historical Society of Northern New York (RHSNNY) is a 501c3 Non-Profit Educational Facility dedicated to preserving the age of the “Iron Horse” for future generations to come!

 

Stop by to view our most recent addition. It is a model train layout, built in 1989 and commissioned by Railroad Model Craftsman magazine, of the Lowville and Beaver River (L&BR) railroad.

      Winter is coming

      12/08/2017

      No, not the Game of Thrones.  I wish though.   Just thought that my primary genealogy season is usually the winter and early Spring.  Not sure what time you have available, but this works for me.

      The Spring Slowdown

      04/23/2017

      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
