Lake Shore Railway Historical Society & Museum
Lake Shore Railway Historical Society’s mission is to Preserve, Share and Enjoy the memory, history and experience of railroading, particularly that of northwestern Pennsylvania, western New York and northeastern Ohio. Through the "Locomotives that Dad & Grandpa Built Collection" we maintain special collection emphasis on General Electric rail transportation history and products, Heisler Locomotive Works history and all local railroad companies (past & present) due to the impact they have had on the people and economy of the region.
Programs and Services
Preserve & Share appropriate artifacts/histories of significance on its property adjacent to the CSX and Norfolk Southern Railroad mainlines in North East, Pennsylvania. The all volunteer staff provide a variety of interesting and enjoyable projects and activities for all to encourage and nurture the mission. The volunteers undertake maintenance and restoration of the equipment and displays, conduct classes, give tours, present lectures and multimedia programs, and host social events and meetings. Various community groups utilize the museum facilities as their regular meeting place. The park-like grounds which are open to the public during daylight hours year-round, are recognized as family safe area to watch mainline railroad action.
