2009 Santa Train on New Jersey Transit Raritan Valley Line

This year’s trips (morning and afternoon) will be held Saturday, December 12, 2009.

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 train operates west from Westfield to Highbridge, NJ and back, a two hour trip.

The morning train will originate from Raritan at 8:30 AM and go to Westfield where it will depart at 9:00 AM for the trip to High Bridge. You may board this train at either Raritan or Westfield. This train will then return to Westfield, stopping at Raritan along the way back.

The afternoon trip will depart Westfield at 1:00 PM, travel to High Bridge and return to Westfield. The second trip does not stop at Raritan.

This year, tickets are only $13.00 for adults and $11.00 for children age 1 to 12. Children under 1 are FREE.

We have tickets for these trips. Stop in the Big Little Railroad Shop now before these trips sell-out. Cash or personal check made out to the Jersey Central Railroad Historical Society. Sorry, no credit cards for train tickets.
