Both the Tri-State Railway HS and Jersey Central Chapter of the NRHS have cancelled the annual "Santa Claus Trains" due to Hurricane Sandy. The explanation is as follows The cancellation is a result of the effects of Superstorm Sandy and the damage sustained by New Jersey Transit to their equipment and facilities. They have determined that they are unable to provide service for this year’s Santa Train. More information can be found on their respective websites.
