History & railroad enthusiasts collaborate to form Steel City Chapter of R&LHS

Railroad enthusiasts in the Pittsburgh area are forming a chapter of the Railroad & Locomotive Historical Society, called the Steel City Chapter, to be based in McKeesport, PA.

The Railway & Locomotive Historical Society, Inc., founded in 1921, is the oldest organization in North America devoted to railroad history, and among the first anywhere to pursue formal studies in the history of technology. The Society promotes research and encourages preservation of documentation and photography of business history, finance, labor history, and biography as well as technology.

Membership is $50.00 a year and is open to anyone over the age of all ages. The cost includes membership in both the Steel City Chapter and the Railway & Locomotive Historical Society.

For more membership information, please contact Kevin G. Varrato at, or visit “Steel City Chapter of the R&LHS” on Facebook.
