URHS is happy to announce that funding has been secured to move the second CNJ Blue Comet car the D’Arrest! The Westphal made it safely to Boonton Yard and we will soon be moving the D’Arrest! With both cars safely to Boonton the focus will convert over to the securement of the two cars from any further weather damage, while plans are created to begin restoration of the Westphal. Look for more opportunities in the near future to support this project and also to come lend a hand and help revive these pieces of NJ history! A very big thank you to those organizations and individuals who all helped make this happen!
