Welcome to the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad Historical Society web site!


Welcome to our website

The Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad Historical Society is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, whose mission is to collect and preserve the history of the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad in personal recollections, photographs, documents, memorabilia, and models. We seek to promote the discovery, enjoyment, and modeling of this railroad!

A number of Society members are model railroaders. Many of our publications, drawings and sale items are geared toward the modeler.

Membership Rate Increase

"After over 20 years without an increase in the yearly membership rate, the Board found it necessary to raise the annual membership costs due to continually increasing TT printing and mailing charges. This cost hike will become effective shortly after the annual meeting on the date of June 15th." - Richard Anderson, Superintendent

All references to membership rates on the web site should now reflect the rate as of June 15, 2018.
