This year’s train will operate December 7th on the NYS&W Southern Division, December 8th on the M&NJ Hudson Secondary and Walden Branch, and December 14th on the M&E High Bridge and Dover & Rockaway Branches.

M&E 1775 (USMC Boxcar) was delivered to Morristown sometime this week.
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.
