It's the time of year when Santa Claus invites one and all to celebrate the coming Christmas Season with Family and Friends by riding the rails onboard the Whippany Railway Museum's SANTA CLAUS SPECIAL excursion trains.


The 10-mile, 45-minute round trip excursion from Whippany to Roseland and return allows passengers time to enjoy the Festivities of the Season and the merriment on the train.  All of our past trips over the last 20 years have been complete sell-outs, and seeing the excited faces of the children as they climb aboard the Christmas Holiday-decorated trains, ensures an afternoon for Family Fun.

During each excursion, Santa makes his way through the train and visits with the children onboard.  Santa's helpers follow along, giving the kids a special gift from Santa.  Be sure to bring your camera and take pictures of the kids with Santa, so they can always remember their day onboard the train !

In addition to the regular coaches that make up the train, make your day Extra Special by purchasing limited tickets for a nostalgic Christmas ride aboard the Museum's elegant 1927-era Central Railroad of New Jersey (CNJ) 'Club Car' Jersey Coast. Specially Decorated for the Christmas Holidays in a pre-World War II style, the car has the warm look and feel of a private club with individual leather chairs, mahogany interior accented with stained glass, built-in tables and period ceiling fans.
