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.
