The Bellefonte Historical Railroad Society is an all-volunteer historical society dedicated to promoting, preserving, and fostering a public appreciation of the railroading heritage of Bellefonte and Centre County, Pennsylvania. We own several historic pieces of rolling stock including two Budd Rail Diesel Cars (RDCs), a wooden caboose and a snow plow on static display, and four speeder cars.
Currently we host two annual excursion weekends, in October and December. These excursions are operated with the support of the SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority and the Nittany and Bald Eagle RR using restored 1920s and 1940s era passenger equipment from Jeff Pontius' Penn Valley RR. See our ticket window for information on upcoming trips.
BHRS is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation with no paid employees or administrators.
