The Morristown & Erie Railway offers a number of passenger railcars for charter and private events, as well as storage and rebuilding services for privately owned cars. With over 30 years of experience in the private railcar industry, the M&E offers a complete package of passenger car options for your every need, whether you are looking for a car to ride or a place to keep a car of your own.

Charter Services

The Morristown & Erie Railway is based in Morristown, New Jersey, only 30 miles from New York City. The Morristown & Erie maintains a full fleet of historic passenger cars that are certified for operation on Amtrak and Via Rail trains throughout the United States and Canada. These passenger cars are available for private charter year-round by individuals, groups, or companies that wish to travel and relax in the style and comfort of years ago. Since the early 1980s, the Morristown & Erie Railway has been operating private railcar excursions, political specials, and corporate outings. Whether you are planning a vacation, personal celebration, or corporate event, there is no better way to enhance the experience than aboard a private railcar.

All of our cars were constructed during the heyday of rail travel in the United States and Canada, and they represent the finest accommodations ever available in American rail travel. Each car features a distinctive floor plan serving a unique function. Our fleet includes observation cars, dining cars, buffet lounge cars, sleepers, parlor cars, and coaches. This roster of equipment can be operated as single cars or assembled in any combination to accommodate specific needs. 

When business meetings or events require travel, there is not a more enjoyable method of travel than a private passenger car. Whether you are executives headed to a board of directors meeting in Washington, D.C. or a corporate party headed for Philadelphia, the Morristown & Erie’s private passenger car fleet can be utilized for travel as well as meetings and events. Host your corporate dinner in a dining car, or use the seclusion of the lounge in a business car for the last-minute briefing before your big presentation in Baltimore. 

Our professional staff provides attentive personal service for you and your guests during the trip. Cars with kitchens provide full meal service, and are staffed with trained chefs and servers who prepare and serve on-board customized meals.

For longer trips, sleepers can be chartered to act as mobile hotel rooms, parked at the most central and easily accessible part of most cities – the train station – adding convenience and savings to your travel experience. Sleepers are staffed with porters to meet the needs of overnight guests. 

The Morristown & Erie’s passenger cars are maintained in our company-owned rail shop to ensure that they meet all certifications and inspections needed to provide a safe and quality travel experience.
