Lake Shore Railway Historical Society, Inc. (LSRHS) is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer educational organization operating a railroad museum on the grounds of the former New York Central Railroad passenger depot in the borough of North East in Erie County, Pennsylvania.
Their mission is to preserve, enjoy and share the memory, history and experience of railroading, particularly that of northwestern Pennsylvania. LSRHS maintains a special collection emphasis on General Electric rail transportation products, Heisler Locomotive Works products, and all local railroad companies (past & present) due to the economic, social and historic impact they have had on the local area. LSRHS strives to accomplish its mission by preserving railroad and transportation artifacts on its 2.5 acres of property adjacent to the CSX Railroad mainline in North East, Pennsylvania.
The LSRHS Museum complex is a neighborhood revitalization anchor for its section of North East Borough and provides a safe and open area for viewing railroad operations on the two adjacent railroad mainlines (as citied in nationally distributed Trains Magazine).
