You're Invited to Become a Corporate Member!

The Reading Company Technical and Historical Society (RCT&HS), an all-volunteer non-profit organization of more than 1000 members, was incorporated in 1976 and has assembled one of the country's largest collections of artifacts and equipment relating to a single railroad. The collection includes more than 70 significant examples of the Reading Company's locomotives, freight, passenger, training and work equipment, and tens of thousands of documents and photographs pertaining to the railroad's people, facilities, equipment, and operations. The hundreds of artifacts in the collection include tools, signals, train-dispatching boards, and a 100-foot turntable.


To house this large collection, the RCT&HS is developing the Reading Railroad Heritage Museum in Hamburg, PA, which opened to the public in April, 2008. Its mission is to preserve, display and interpret to the public the history and significance of the Reading Railroad.


What are the benefits of Corporate Membership?
