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 its implementation. To learn more please read our Statement on Preservation.
