New Jersey Day Trip

Saturday, September 09, 2017

A fun-filled day with sights, scenes and snacks

Join us as the ERA concludes the summer with a scenic day trip through New Jersey to visit the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians Museum and take a ride along the Delaware River on a steam train. At lunch time, we will dine (at your own expense) in the open-platform Blue Comet dining car at the Clinton Station Diner, home of the astonishing 50-pound Mt. Olympus Burger.

The Delaware River Railroad takes a beautiful route between Phillipsburg, N.J. and Riegelsville, Pa. running a hand-fired steam locomotive built by Tangshan and pulling restored Long Island Rail Road coaches from the 1950s and 1960s. After lunch, we will visit the restored Phillipsburg Union Station and view the North Jersey Electric Railway Historical Society’s restoration of Public Service Car 2651.


Our chartered Coach Tours bus will leave promptly at 8:30 a.m. from the east side of 8th Avenue, just south of West 41st Street, across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal. We will make a second stop at Metropark station in Iselin, N.J. at 9 a.m. It is expected that we will return around 6:30 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!
