Annual Dues:
For about a century, the railroad was a part of not only economic growth and stability, but a window to the world. As old tracks and rail facilities are used less and less in many rural areas, volunteers get together and ensure they do not fade from our memory.

That's what happened in Croghan, New York, as the members of the Railroad Historical Society of Northern New York (RHSNNY) have converted the old train depot in Croghan, NY into a museum teeming with artifacts of life in the old days. The Croghan Depot once served the Lowville-Beaver River Railway (L&BRR)

The Railroad Historical Society of Northern New York (RHSNNY) is a 501c3 Non-Profit Educational Facility dedicated to preserving the age of the Iron Horse for future generations to come!

Stop by to view our most recent addition. It is a model train layout, built in 1989 and commissioned by Railroad Model Craftsman magazine, of the Lowville and Beaver River (L&BR) railroad. Information and pictures of this model layout can be viewed by going to

Need Help for the Events! If you or your organization are interested in volunteering, please contact our Depot for information.
