The Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum can trace its routes back to 1937 as the Rochester Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. Since our museum was established in 1971, we have preserved more than 40 pieces of historic railroad equipment along with our 1909 Erie Railroad passenger station to bring Rochester's rich railroading heritage to life.
Established in 1973, the New York Museum of Transportation houses eleven full size trolley cars, a caboose, a steam locomotive, antique highway and horse-drawn vehicles, a huge model railroad display, and the various associated smaller items that illuminate Rochester's transportation history.
