The CRHS is a growing, vibrant organization of more than 300 members, dedicated to the preservation of all things Conrail. Membership in the society brings many benefits, some tangible (like the Conrail Quarterly) and many more intangible (knowing that you're a part of keeping the story and equipment of Conrail alive).

Membership entitles you to a subscription to our highly-praised, full-color Conrail Quarterly magazine, as well as discounts on merchandise through our own Conrail Shoppe and through some of our supporting merchants.

Membership Levels

NOTE: Annual memberships purchased before October 1st are counted towards the current year; annual memberships purchased October 1st or later begin on January 1st of the following year.

All annual membership levels include four issues of the Conrail Quarterly, attendance privileges at CRHS membership events, and voting privileges at CRHS membership meetings (one vote per membership).

Digital Membership - $25 - Digital CRHS members receive their copies of the Conrail Quarterly in PDF format. 

Standard Membership - $45 - Standard CRHS members receive full-color printed copies of the Conrail Quarterly.

International Membership - $70 - International CRHS members receive the same benefits as Standard CRHS members, but with their Conrail Quarterlies mailed internationally.

Family Membership - $55 - Family CRHS members receive the same benefits as Standard CRHS members, but membership privileges (such as member discounts and event attendance) extend to all members of their immediate household.

Sustaining Membership - $100 - Sustaining CRHS members demonstrate a greater level of financial support to the CRHS. In return, sustaining members receive all the benefits of the Standard level of membership, plus that year’s calendar from the Conrail Shoppe absolutely free as our way of saying “Thank You.” Sustaining members’ names are printed in the Conrail Quarterly to recognize their exceptional support for CRHS projects and objectives.
