WELCOME to Upstate NY TCA Chapter!
Upstate New York Chapter of the Train Collectors Association – Eastern Division, Welcomes you to our chapter web site!!! We have a NEW web address ‘upstatetca.org’. Over time we will be updating the chapter’s email and other links. The old address ‘upstate-ny-tca.com’ will still work and be accessible.
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, Bus Trips to York Train Meet 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 Brakeman’s Blog, Photo/Video Galleries, Library Section, Train Show Schedule and much, much more.
The chapter emails monthly newsletters on upcoming events and changes in the hobby. So, if you like what you see, TCA members can always join the chapter at anytime.
Upstate New York 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.
