WELCOME to the Upstate New York Chapter of the Train Collectors Association – Eastern Division, web site!!! 

We hope to provide informative information on what our chapter is doing for the train hobby. Currently, we sponsor chapter run Train Shows, TCA Kids Club and other activities for our chapter members and the general public to enjoy. Our web site has many features for everyone to enjoy from the Photo/Video Galleries, Library Section, Train Show Schedule and much, much more.

The chapter emails monthly newsletters on upcoming events and are posted in the Library. So, if you like what you see, TCA members can always join the chapter at anytime.

Upstate NY Chapter Mission:

To develop an appreciation of and to preserve an important segment of history “Tinplate Toy Trains” through research, education, community outreach, fellowship, establishment of collecting standards, to provide a venue to participate in local train meets, attend Division meetings, and participate in social events. We do this to promote the growth and enjoyment of collecting and operating toy model scale trains and encourage the community at large to join.
