The Jersey Central Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, NRHS, was formed in 1980 as a non-profit group dedicated to the preservation and restoration of railroad and railroad related equipment, structures, photographs and literature. To this extent, the group's members have restored, or donated funds for others to restore, several pieces of railroad rolling stock owned by the chapter or the United Railroad Historical Society, URHS, of which JCRHS is a member. We have donated funds for the restoration and painting of URHS owned CNJ GP-7 No. 1523 and GG-1 4877 and have supported financially the restoration of the Centerville and Southwestern Railroad, an operating 2" scale model railroad, located at the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians site in Phillipsburg, NJ. Jersey Central's restored Erie caboose C-177 is on display at the Whippany Railway Museum.
Jersey Central holds monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of each month at the American Legion Hall in Westfield, NJ. For more information concerning our meetings, please visit our Meetings Page. Membership information can be found on our Membership Page which includes an application form.
