The Hickory Creek Lookout Lounge car will be taking up residence in the Big Apple for the beginning of spring to host four weekends of excursions.
This will include our mainstay "Hudson Limited" and the new "Cherry Blossom Special:" a first class, overnight trip to Washington DC for the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
After 15 years of sitting in Passaic she's home! The last surviving U34CH #3372 has been successfully brought home by the URHS and the Morristown & Erie Railway. Today could not have gone any smoother.
Thank you to the M&E for taking on this task and to all the U-Boat fans who donated. This move was funded 100% by donations from fans of the U-Boat, and we are proud to say it.
Next step... make it run!

The next step is to return the locomotive to operation. Initial condition reports show that it's in very good shape inside & out, although a full mechanical inspection is needed. When it's repaired mechanically & the exterior is restored, we will establish where it will see a return to service. It's our hope that it will once again pull passengers in New Jersey. With your donations, we can make that a reality.

The United Railroad Historical Society of New Jersey, Inc. aka URHS is a non-profit educational organization directed at supporting the preservation of historical railroad equipment and artifacts for the proposed NJ Transportation Heritage Center or in its absence, another railroad museum in NJ.
In order to coordinate resources, representatives from most of New Jersey's major railroad interest organizations formed the URHS in 1987. URHS has been working toward rescuing potential exhibits from scrapping and has been assisting in planning for Transportation Heritage Center(s) in NJ.
Once a heritage center has been established, we expect to play a major role in it's implementation. To learn more please read our Statement on Preservation.
