Welcome to the customized Social Network of The Akron, Canton and Youngstown Railroad Historical Society.
We are launching a community site to bring together AC&Y fans from around the world. The idea is to build knowledge and fellowship by creating an online destination where like-minded people want to hang out.It is believed that one of the most useful aspects of social networking sites is education.
A social network service focuses on building online communities of people who share interests and/or activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. When used properly, social networks can be a great way to enhance knowledge. Everyone talks about how knowledge is the important asset. But it has to be applied to be useful. Effectiveness of knowledge is multiplied if it's in the form of a conversation where people can educate each other.
These Services are coming soon! Please join us also on...

As the Society company store is no longer operational, we have decided not to serve as a retail distributor, though we do have dealer privileges. Its simply a matter of resources which we do not have. However, in lieu of this decision, we have contacted Chuck Macklin, a longtime reputable dealer of railroad related books. Chuck has agreed to become our "offical" retail source should anyone wish to purchase our magnificent publication. Chuck's pricing is very competitive and his service beyond reproach.
