What we're about

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, except for August.

Monthly meetings are held, usually on the fourth Friday of the month (no meetings in 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. Non-members are allowed a one-time free admission. Afterwards, a $5.00 admission fee is charged.

The next ZOOM meeting will be Friday, October 22 at 7:30 pm. For security reasons, members must write to [masked] or call 516-[masked] to request an invitation. The invitation, which changes every month, will be a ZOOM link or telephone number, which will be sent a few days prior to the program. This will make it difficult for the program to be disrupted.

Andrew Grahl presents Pandemic Railfanning, rescheduled from January. It begins with 2020 in Review: a news segment of rail and transit events in the New York City Area, including New Jersey Transit heritage units. Railroad Review is next: Visits to the Reading & Northern, Delaware-Lackawanna, Massachusetts Central, Housatonic, Batten Kill and New York & Atlantic and more. The last part is Look Back into History: railroad and subway slides taken in the NYC area in the 1950s and 1960s.
