For about a century, the railroad was a part of not only
economic growth and stability, but a window on the world. As old tracks and rail
facilities are used less and less in many rural areas, volunteers get together
and ensure they do not fade from memory.
That's what happened in Croghan, New York, as the members of
the Railroad Historical Society of Northern New York (RHSNNY) have
converted the old train depot in Croghan, NY into a museum teeming with
artifacts of life in the old days. The Croghan Depot once served the Lowville-Beaver
River Railway (L&BRR)
The Railroad Historical Society of Northern New
York (RHSNNY) is a 501c3 Non-Profit Educational Facility dedicated
to preserving the age of the “Iron Horse” for future generations to
Stop by to view our most recent addition. It is a model train layout, built in 1989 and commissioned by Railroad Model Craftsman magazine, of the Lowville and Beaver River (L&BR) railroad.
