National Railway Historical Society
The Wilmington Chapter of
the National Railway Historical Society was chartered in 1967.
We have monthly meetings
and produce our own chapter newsletter.
In addition to the monthly meetings, we sponsor the annual "Super Saturday Trolley Charter in Philadelphia, and generally schedule a summer rail excursion/night photo session.
We run rail
excursions in South Jersey, DelMarVa and Southeastern Pennsylvania,
including SEPTA streetcar trips.
We have also sponsored
doodlebug and steam-powered mixed trains over the Wilmington &
Western Railroad, and a photo freight on the West Chester Railroad.
Our Chapter has enjoyed
tours of Amtrak's Centralized Electrification and Traffic Control Center
in Philadelphia's 30th Street Station and the Bear and Wilmington
