All PCRRHS Members receive the Society's thrice-yearly magazine, the POST.

About Us

The Penn Central Railroad Historical Society was formed to preserve the history and heritage of the railroads operated by the Penn Central Transportation Company. For many years, PC was not looked upon favorably by railroad enthusiasts or some former employees, as it brought to an end three popular railroads in the eastern United States: Pennsylvania, New York Central, and New Haven. Becoming the largest bankruptcy in the nation's history up to that time also cast scorn on the company.

2011 Convention

The 2011 PCRRHS Annual Convention was held September 29 through October 1, 2011, in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
