U34CH #3372 is home!

After 15 years of sitting in Passaic she's home! The last surviving U34CH #3372 has been successfully brought home by the URHS and the Morristown & Erie Railway. Today could not have gone any smoother.

Thank you to the M&E for taking on this task and to all the U-Boat fans who donated. This move was funded 100% by donations from fans of the U-Boat, and we are proud to say it.

Next step... make it run!

The donations keep coming in! Please consider donat­ing! Thank you for those who have con­tributed! more…

The next step is to return the locomotive to operation. Initial condition reports show that it's in very good shape inside & out, although a full mechanical inspection is needed. When it's repaired mechanically & the exterior is restored, we will establish where it will see a return to service. It's our hope that it will once again pull passen­gers in New Jersey. With your donations, we can make that a reality.

Donate via buying a U34 t-shirt!

About The United Railroad Historical Society

The United Railroad Historical Society of New Jersey, Inc. aka URHS is a non-profit edu­ca­tional organ­ization directed at sup­porting the preser­vation of historical railroad equip­ment and artifacts for the proposed NJ Trans­por­tation Heritage Center or in its absence, another railroad museum in NJ.

In order to coordinate resources, repre­sentatives from most of New Jersey's major rail­road interest organ­izations formed the URHS in 1987. URHS has been working to­ward rescuing potential exhibits from scrap­ping and has been assisting in plan­ning for Trans­portation Heritage Center(s) in NJ.

Once a heritage center has been estab­lished, we expect to play a major role in it's implementation. To learn more please read our Statement on Preservation.
