Preserving the heritage of railroading in Western Pennsylvania                                 

We have been saying "maybe next year" an awful lot when it comes to bringing home some of our favorite toys. The Monday work crew put on an amazing track laying show in the waning months of 2017, leaving us with the infrastructure to finally have a little fun. We fully expect to have Doc's Caboose, our long awaited Brookville Rail Car and our Fairmont speeder on the premises by the end of this year. 

Maybe next year ?, next year is now!

West Pittsburg Station Pre-1920


We are located in West Pittsburg, PA and are dedicated to preserving the rich history of railroading in our area. Our society is comprised of railroad enthusiasts from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and other states as far away as California.

Our organization began when an informal group of rail fans and railroad employees started meeting in a public library and a supermarket's community room in Beaver County. Today we are a full-fledged historical society meeting in our own train station in Lawrence County. In addition to the station, we own an interlocking tower, a watchman's shanty, an N5c cabin car, a Bookville rail car, a superintendent's track car, and many other historic railroad items.

The Beaver-Lawrence Railway Historical Society is registered as a non-profit historical organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
