Key Lock & Lantern, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation of railroad history & memorabilia. Our mission is to gather and publish information about transportation history, and to support the conservation of all types of railroadiana, including historical artifacts, photos, records, and stories. Railroad historians and collectors are invited to browse our website, download free newsletters about railroad preservation, and utilize our other online resources. In addition to receiving the digital newsletter directly by e-mail, Key Lock & Lantern members also receive a quarterly printed journal, with in-depth articles about railroad history and preservation, and an invitation to participate in the annual KL&L Convention. Anyone with a serious interest in railroad or transportation history will benefit from membership in Key Lock & Lantern.

The 2015 Key, Lock & Lantern Convention is planned to be held in Utica, NY, over the weekend of June 5-7, 2015. Additional details and registration information will be available soon, but mark your calendars now!
