Welcome to the
Pittsburg, Shawmut & Northern Railroad Historical Society

Our society is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization chartered by the New York State Board of Regents as a Museum and Educational Society.

Please use the links at the left to navigate this site.

We are pleased to announce our 2016 Calendar of Events.  We
will be posting specific updates regarding events as they become available.

During the week of the 2015 fair, Chief of Police Tim Walsh of the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad donated an HO Scale box car to the museum.  The railroad was celebrating "50 Years of Service" for the Livonia Avon & Lakeville Railroad, which also included the Bath & Hammondsport Railroad Corp.  If you are interested in learning about the railroad go to the LA&L website for more information.  We appreciate their donation to our HO scale railroad in coach 278.
