Spring Railroad Festival at Tuckahoe, NJ

The United Railroad Historical Society of NJ will be hosting its first Spring Railroad Festival at the historic Tuckahoe NJ train station. This festival will provide the public with a rare opportunity to ride in vintage train cars and learn about railroad history on the Cape May Seashore Lines.

Train rides, which will depart from the Tuckahoe station, will consist of locomotives and cars that are owned by the URHS and cared for by the Cape May Seashore Lines.

In addition to train rides, the station will be host to railroad vendors, motor car rides, stationary equipment tours, and other railroad related attractions, all included in the price of a train ticket.

The event will be held Saturday April 23rd 2016 at the Tuckahoe Village Train Station at Reading Avenue & Mill Road, Woodbine, NJ 08270 and will be open to the public from 10 am to 6 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the station the day of the event and cost $10 per person or $25 per family.   more info
