Oyster Bay Station 2022 Restoration Update

Eric Scheblein of Scheblein plumbing had his crew come in and hook us up to both the waste line in the street and gave us our cold water lines installed. One of our biggest supporters, Steve Minicozzi of Cozi Enterprises donated his money time and services to have our bathroom doors installed and painted, put down a beautiful new tile floor and painted the bathroom a neutral beige. When dry, they will finish the bathroom installation of sink, toilet and other pieces.

Oyster Bay Station Display Yard Update

When we opened up for the 2021 season we were fortunate to finally be in our Historic, Presidential railroad station.

We were also happy to be able to introduce our fully operational turntable at the display yard. Our visitation level has increased and folks are planning their visits around the opportunity to ride on the turntable!

But! That was last year.

After setting up our 6 year plan, this year, 2022, we are installing 2 tracks off our turntable and will have them ready at our season opening. Afterwards, we are bringing in a rigging crew and crane to move many pieces of equipment in the display yard to their new spots. Over the winter and into the spring, our amazing volunteers have brought us to this point through their hard work.

Jim Schoomaker brought in and dumped, 22 cubic yards of Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA). After that, Nick Doering moved it around so our volunteers could create the 2 track roadbeds.

Over the month of April, we will finish these 2 tracks

Oyster Bay Railroad Museum

History of The Museum

The Oyster Bay Railroad Museum, in historic Oyster Bay, N.Y., is dedicated to preserving the rich legacy of Long Island's railroad history.

The permanent makeup of the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum will consist of two major elements

Historic Oyster Bay Railroad Station

  • An indoor museum exhibit area contained in the historic Oyster Bay Railroad Station.

Locomotive #35 with Turntable

  • An outdoor exhibit area featuring Locomotive #35 and other historic examples of railroad rolling stock.

The 2 sites will be linked by a short pedestrian walking path through scenic Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park.

OBRM Site Plan

Once permanently situated within the Station, the Museum will also include a permanent Oyster Bay Visitor Center. The Center will provide information, literature, and local promotional material for the many historic, cultural, and family friendly attractions in and around the Oyster Bay area, in total benefiting local residents, businesses, and visitors alike. It is from this permanent Museum location from which accommodation is planned for a "touring trolley" that will transport visitors to the many points of interest in and about Oyster Bay.

Currently, the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum is housed in the Museum's Visitor Center, located at 102 Audrey Avenue in downtown Oyster Bay. This interim facility contains selected displays from the OBRM's growing collection, exhibits outlining our ambitious plans for the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum of the future, and a gift shop featuring a broad variety of rail-themed merchandise. The Center also offers visitor information for those who may not be familiar with the many other sites, restaurants, and other places of local interest.
