Who is the Steel City Chapter?

We are made up of current and former railroad employees along with railroad enthusiasts, historians, photographers, and people that love trains. A few years ago a group of us decided to form a group with the purpose of preserving the rich railroad heritage of Western Pennsylvania. 

Our Goal:

We aim to commemorate and celebrate the history of the Pittsburgh region, with a focus on railroads as well as the industries and communities they served.  This can be achieved in many ways, including: 

  • Archiving of documents, photography and spoken word

  • Educational presentations

  • Models and other recreations

  • Acquisition and preservation of tools and equipment


How Can You Help?

Memberships and donations go a long way in our effort.  Whether its helping acquires historic items for our library, maintaining a presence at local trade shows, or just keeping the lights on, every dollar goes a long way.  You are invited to attend a monthly meeting and learn more!
