Lake Shore Railway Museum

Our mission is to preserve, enjoy and share the memory, history and experience of railroading, particularly that of northwestern Pennsylvania, western New York and northeastern Ohio, as it has been and as it is now. LSRHS maintains a special collection with emphasis on General Electric rail transportation products, Heisler Locomotive Works products, Pullman Standard Car Company products and all local railroad companies (past and present) due to the economic, social and historic impact they have had on the local area. LSRHS strives to accomplish its mission by preserving railroad and transportation artifacts of local, regional and/or industrial significance on its 2.5 acres of property adjacent to the CSX Railroad mainline in North East, Pennsylvania.

Lake Shore Railway Museum

Pennsylvania museum

Founded in 1956, the Lake Shore Railway Historical Society (LSRHS) is an all-volunteer educational organization operating a railroad museum on the grounds of the former New York Central passenger depot in the borough of North East, Pa. The museum is adjacent to an active CSX mainline, formerly the thoroughfare for New York Central passenger and freight operations between New York City and Chicago. The core of the museum's collection represents motive power and rolling stock with historical ties to the region, especially the General Electric locomotive plant in nearby Erie, Pa.
