Father's Day Train Rides

Father’s Day Train Rides – Whippany Railway Museum

Is there a better gift for your father on their special day than a Father’s Day train ride? We don’t think so! Why not treat him to a vintage train ride experience onboard the Whippany Railway Museum’s “Father’s Day Express” train on June 16th?

Dad is sure to enjoy time with his family while being whisked back to another era  – a day trip that will create memories for all!  Step back through the decades at the non-profit Whippany Railway Museum, where we provide a 10-mile, 45-minute round-trip ride.  Onboard this limited-time event, you’ll travel the route of “The Whippanong Trail.”  The train rolls through Whippany, East Hanover, Livingston, and Roseland in Morris and Essex Counties.  You’ll pass through the remnants of pre-historic Glacial Lake Passaic, a natural swamp that supports abundant wildlife, such as deer, turtles, wild turkeys, hawks, and rabbits.

This excursion offers 3 different seating classes to choose from:

Passengers can board a caboose of their choice and experience how freight railroaders lived and worked onboard their cozy, little “home-away-from-home” way cars. The kids love the cabooses!

For a slightly higher fare, you can upgrade your excursion experience by choosing to ride in our 1927-era Central Railroad of New Jersey club car “Jersey Coast.” A beautifully restored, wood-paneled conveyance that features all the amenities offered by the CNJ’s legendary Blue Comet passenger train of the 1930s. Additionally, the Blue Comet traveled between Jersey City and Atlantic City. Painted in a two-tone blue with a cream window band, this striking car reminds one of a comet streaking through space.

For the ultimate experience, climb aboard the award-winning Lackawanna Railroad Subscription Club Car No. 2454. A train car that radiated elegance on a train once known as ‘The Millionaire’s Express.’ Additionally, this car ran between Hoboken Terminal and Gladstone, NJ, from 1912 to 1984.

Whichever car you choose to ride, it’s a fun, old-fashioned, relaxing way of spending a Sunday afternoon with the family.
