I was on the operationtoytrain.org page. I saw the times listed as well as the boxcars that will be in the consists. I don't see the motive power listed. What will be the motive power?

The NS H02 is moving the Toys Train from Dover with a stop at Boonton to the NYSW at Saddle Brook on Thursday, I guess we will have to wait and see what they bring.

The host railroads are responsible for the power. So whatever the NYSW and M&NJ have available this weekend is what will be used.

Remember.. This is NOT a railfan event. It is not designed for or catering to railfans. This a benefit for area children who are not as fortunate as others. If you're going to go out and shoot pictures or videos of this train, please bring a new and unwrapped toy to at least one of the stops.

Correct, it is definately not catered toward railfans. It's purpose is to give to the needy children. I plan to do that. Hopefully other's will follow the advice too.
