Handsome Lima Mikes! Yellow Fairbanks-Morse Diesels! Daily mixed trains serving picturesque Ohio towns. Twenty-seven interchanges with the NKP, PRR, NYC, Erie, DT&I, C&O, B&O, A&BB. A right-of-way with more than a curve a mile. High bridges. Victorian depots. McKeen Cars. All this was the AC&Y!
The Akron, Canton and Youngstown Railroad Historical Society was organized in 1992 by a dedicated group of AC&Y enthusiasts. Our interests and goals are to document, preserve and share the AC&Y's history including predecessor and affiliated lines in Northern Ohio.
Our membership is diverse...some are former employees, others from communities served by the road. Still others didn't have a chance to see the AC&Y, but wish they had! All share the same enthusiasm for historic preservation and interpretation of "Ohio's Road of Service."
Whether your interests are classic photos, historic maps and documents, modeling, restoration of rail equipment, or you simply enjoy reading or hearing about the AC&Y, we invite you to join us!

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.
