How to Use the NYCSHS Collinwood Shop

1. My Account

This is a view of the front page of the NYCSHS store called the Collinwood Shop.

If you are a new user, please click on the “My Account” button and set up your account.  Once it is set up, you will eventually be notified that your account has been approved.

DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THE EMAIL FROM US TELLING YOU THAT YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED. Do not confuse your “Approval” message with the automated message sent out by the store immediately after your registration. You are waiting for one of us to manually check your membership status and code the result into your account. While most “Approval” messages go out within a few hours, it could take a longer if both of our storekeepers are attending railfan events. Please be patient.

Once you have been approved you may come to the store and log in using the “My Account” button.

Once you click on the “My Account” button you will be taken to this following page:

2. Log In My Account-Reset My Password-Create Account

On this page you must enter your email address and the password that you set up when you opened your account with us.

If you have forgotten your password, enter your email address under the “Forgot Your Password?” notice and click on the red “Reset My Password” button.  You will receive an email with instructions for resetting your password.

After you enter the correct email address and password you will be taken back to the front page of the store.  From there you may select the “Category” from which you wish to order from the screen shown below.

3. Category
