  1. Please fill out the form as soon as possible. Many tours require security clearing in advance. We will begin assigning tours as early as next week.
  2. We will only contact you for the tours you have been assigned. We will do our best to give you adequate time to plan. These are high volume tours, so please be patient as we handle the logistics of scheduling multiple tours.
  3. Space is extremely limited on these tours, and members will get first priority. If you are not a member, it is unlikely you will be selected for these high demand tours. Please click here to become a member.


  1. We have received a few questions regarding the NYNJ Rail tour.
    The NYNJ Rail ( is the rail float between Brooklyn and New Jersey that uses barges to transport rail between the states. The next closest freight rail crossing across the Hudson is near Albany. The tour will be on the Brooklyn side. Thank you!

  2. Could you post a little blurb about each tour? This page refers to which just links back here.

    1. Thanks for your interest in our summer tour series, Matthias. Which tours are you interested in? We are happy to provide descriptions for any that you would like more details.

      1. It would be helpful if YPT could post a sentence or two about all of the tours. I am interested in most of them but would like detail about what the tour entails. Thank you.

  3. There has been a slight change in the TBTA tour. The tour will not include the TBTA archives, as previously mentioned. Please see the revised description below:
