Our mission is preserving the history of the
Penn Central Transportation Company
Welcome to the online home of the Penn Central Railroad Historical Society. Our mission is to preserve the history of the railroad known as the Penn Central Transportation Company, including its people and equipment, its heritage before its formation in 1968, its all-too-brief life, and its slow fade into Conrail.
