NYCSHS Digital Archives

NYCSHS Digital Archives

This capability is online now and you can use this new website to browse through the currently over 58,000 images. After a couple of weeks to make sure everything is working properly, we will roll out the new NYCSHS Digital Store for you to purchase these images.

The new archive is available at For additional information about the archive, please email The new archive is powered by Omeka.Net:

Please go to the Digital Archive and browse the large collection of images.  Become familiar with what is there and enjoy!!!

Once the Digital Store is rolled out you will be able to select the ones you wish to purchase and order them directly from that site.  Payment options will include checks, money orders, credit cards and PayPal. And once the payment is made, your product will be sent directly to you digitally by email.

We hope to add this additional capability shortly. We are in the final stages of putting the NYCSHS Digital Store in place so expect an announcement soon that we are going live with it.

The NYCSHS IT Committee will be adding additional products in the coming months to eventually provide a complete selection of individual digital products for all of the material in our NYCSHS database.

“The new archive system now serves as the central resource for making our extraordinary collection of photos, maps, drawings and track plans available to NYCS railroad enthusiasts,” said David Mackay, President of the NYCSHS. “The implementation team has done an outstanding job of developing this resource for the Society and we thank them for their contribution.”

Covid-19 is still very much with us and it is causing issues that will continue to delay full implementation of this new capability quickly, but we are continuing to work on this as we can.

Watch For Upcoming Announcements
