Former ATSF bedroom lounge observation car VISTA VALLEY (800020) recently departed from the M&E Railway, in freight service, en-route to the Cape May Seashore Lines. It's possible this car may be used in excursion service on CMSL.

2018 Tuckahoe Transportation Heritage Festival

Post by FullScale4Me » Fri Apr 20, 2018 10:41 pm

The United Railroad Historical Society of NJ, Inc. will be hosting its second Spring Transportation Heritage Festival at the historic Tuckahoe train station grounds on Saturday April 28, 2018 from 10 am to 4 pm. The event runs rain or shine. The event will be held at the Tuckahoe Village Train station grounds at 31 Mill Road, Woodbine, New Jersey 08270

Tickets
Tickets for the festival are just $10 per person or $25 per family and include access to everything including the train ride. You can upgrade your train ride seating to first class and ride in a lounge car for just $5 more. Tickets can be purchased in advance with your credit card by clicking on the order section or on the day of the festival at the main entrance. There are limited tickets available and are sure to sell fast so don’t delay, buy today. Please stop at the entrance table and pickup a wristband to show for admission to the days activities.

Visitors will be able to get up close and personal with vintage railroad equipment and well as visiting classic cars, trucks, buses, and military vehicles. Food concessions, historical & educational presentations, and other vendors will round out a day that the whole family can enjoy!

The theme for the festival will be Railroads and the Military and in part will honor those who have served our nation in all branches of the military. The Friends of The NJ Transportation Heritage Center have committed two historic buses to be there.

This festival will provide the public with a rare opportunity to ride in vintage train cars and learn about railroad history of the Cape May Seashore Lines, the PRSL, Pennsylvania RR, Reading RR Co., and the Central Railroad of NJ. Train rides, which will depart from the Tuckahoe station, will consist of locomotives and cars, many of which are owned by the URHS of NJ and cared for by the Cape May Seashore Lines Railroad. This Transportation Heritage Festival will also include displays of many other forms of transit history: buses, trucks, cars, and military vehicles.

There hasn't been a summer excursion on the Seashore Lines in years!

The vandalised portion of the Cape May Branch may or may not have something to do with this. Summer excursions usually consisted of trains between Cold Spring Village and Cape May. Not being able to get equipment down there more than likely presented an issue.

CMSL does run trips between Tuckahoe and Richland during Richland Days, the URHS event and MAYBE an Easter run, during the Spring. Then there are the Santa trains at Christmas.
That's it!

The CMSL website mentioned something about an observation car. Sounds like the VISTA VALLEY will be in service for the Santa Trains.
