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.
