The DOVER HARBOR is owned and operated by the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization chartered in the District of Columbia in 1944.  We operate the car all over the country as a living example of rail travel from the 1930's, teaching people from all walks of life and all ages about the car, railroading and its history, and the role the railroads played in building our great nation (and still today)!  Besides offering public trips and private  charters service, we participate in educational programs and over the years have hosted boy scout troops, school groups, held public open houses, and hosted thousands of kids (of all ages), Moms, and Dads aboard for mini-tours.  In 2006 we even donated the use of the car to a special train that took over 100 severely wounded soldiers, sailors, and airmen from Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital to the Army vs.  Navy game, for free!

Our crew, passionate about our car and mission and dressed in period attire, completes the experience. Stepping aboard the DOVER HARBOR is like stepping back in time, 70 years.  Being able to experience the car on the rails or in a real station  instead of looking at a static display in a museum brings a whole new educational dimension to a passenger and guests.  Because much of the work to store, maintain and operate the car is performed by our dedicated cadre of volunteer staff, we are able to keep our costs low.  And while we derive some revenue from trips and charters,  costs for major capital projects, restoration initiatives, and major Amtrak inspections require the support of the public through direct donations.  

Donations to the Washington, D.C. Chapter NRHS for the future of the DOVER HARBOR are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible to the maximum extent permitted by the Internal Revenue Code. Please send your donations to the Washington, D.C. Chapter NRHS to:

Washington, D.C. Chapter NRHS
1325 G ST, NW
Suite 500
Washington, D.C. 20005-3146

Please make your check payable to the "Washington, D.C. Chapter NRHS".
Thank you.
