Dashing through NJ's snow...

(Train sightings on 12-14-13.) 

... in order to photograph two excursion trains before NJ experienced the full brunt of the forecasted Saturday snow storm. The first excursion was "The Santa Train" organized by the Jersey Central Chapter of the NRHS and was operated over NJT's Raritan Valley Line between Raritan and Westfield. By the time the second excursion was pulling into the Somerville station at 10:30, the storm's intensity started to pick up. All three trips were sold out!  

After this train departed Somerville's station, I was off to Flemington to photograph the first run of the day of BR&W's "North Pole Express". Saturday's two runs for this excursion were also sold out. BR&W # 60 is seen here crossing the Second Neshanic River with its three coach consist.
