We know of 2 different Santa Trains being run on New Jersey Transit. One on Saturday, 12/8/07 on the Raritan Valley line and one on Saturday, 12/15/07 on the Hackettstown-Netcong-Dover line.
Raritan Valley Santa Train, 12/8/07
Join Santa, Mrs. Claus, and their elves for a train ride through the country. This trip features Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus along with a few of Santa's helpers. There are sing-a-longs, candy canes and coloring books for the kids. In addition, each car on the train features a drawing for a trainset; that's ten train sets per trip! Santa pays a visit to each car and is more than happy to pose for pictures with the kids.
The Raritain Valley train departs Raritan at 8:30 AM and goes to Westfield where it will depart at 9:00 AM for the trip to High Bridge. This train will then return to Westfield, stopping at Raritan along the way. A second trip will depart Westfield at 1:00 PM, travel to High Bridge and return to Westfield.
The price for the trip is $10.00 for children under 12 yrs. and $12.00 per adult.
Tickets for the Raritain Valley trains may be purchased from The Big Little Railroad Shop. Cash or personal check made out to the Jersey Central Railroad Historical Society. Sorry, no credit cards for train tickets.
