The Morristown & Erie Railway takes great pride in announcing that for the fifth straight year, it will partner with the Military Transport Association, the Volunteer Railroaders Association, NJ Transit Rail Operations, the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway, the Middletown & New Jersey Railroad, Norfolk Southern Corporation, and the United States Marine Corps for Operation Toy Train 2013.

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. A special new addition this year will have the train on display for the entire day on December 15th at Kuiken Brothers Company of Succasunna, NJ, along the M&E Chester Branch.

Operation Toy Train 2012 collected over 16,000 toys for the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, which distributes the toys to less fortunate children in local communities during the holiday season.
