     Founded in 1934, The New York Railroad Enthusiasts is a non-profit educational organization consisting of railfans from all walks of life. Members receive a copy of the BULLETIN monthly, with a combined issue for July and August. Monthly meetings are held, usually on the fourth Friday of the month (except July and August), at the Williamson Library, Grand Central Terminal, New York City. Visual entertainment (slides or film) is introduced by a guest presenter. Meet at the entrance to Track 23 on the upper level at 7:00 PM or 7:15 PM to be escorted to the library, which is in a secured area. Late arrivals should phone the library at (516) 660-1972. A $5.00 admission fee is charged for non-members.

A list of recent programs can be found here.

We periodically organize trips to ride railroads, e.g. Valley Railroad [CT], Long Island Railroad [NY] and Steamtown [PA]. A list of recent trips can be found here.

The New York Railroad Enthusiasts maintains an extensive collection of railroad literature at its WILLIAMSON LIBRARY in Grand Central Terminal. It is open for research by members upon request. More information on the library can be found at these websites:
