The PTHS Mission

The Passenger Train Historical Society is devoted to the Presentation
and Exhibition of Passenger Train History

Our goal is to promote the knowledge of the significant history of railroad passenger cars and trains. This includes the historical cars and trains of past centuries and of the present day Amtrak and commuter railroad operations, as well as the developing high speed rail operations. These goals are met through our activities, conferences, symposiums, field trips, excursions, and by communication through our website and future newsletters. The exchange of knowledge by education at our activities and the participation of the membership in this exchange will help us learn more of the history of passenger trains in different areas and eras.

The PTHS has been under development since 2008 by those interested in the presentation, preservation, and exhibition of railroad passenger operational history. Presently, the PTHS is growing and will be managed by a five person Board of Directors which is selected from the membership at large. Many passenger train historians and excursion train operators and organizations are members.
