Morristown & Erie Railway (northern New Jersey) is planning to operate a similar train this winter, using equipment brought back to New Jersey from their former Maine Eastern passenger excursion operation.

It looks like this larger scale operation will overshadow (and may squeeze out of operation) the Whippany Railway Museum's traditional Santa trains, which helped raise funds for the volunteer non-profit museum.
