Armed Forces Day

Saturday, May 19th

Visit the Whippany Railway Museum on Saturday, May 19th for Armed Forces Day from Noon to 5 PM when the Military Transport Association of North Jersey will display a wide variety of classic, restored U.S. Military vehicles and more at the Museum site.

Visitors will also see restored vintage locomotives and rail cars at the site. This Armed Forces Day event will be run in conjunction with the Museum's regularly-scheduled 'Excursion Train Rides' that will operate on the same day. Visitors can climb aboard an authentic, restored caboose or the elegant Jersey Coast club car and enjoy a relaxing trip back to a simpler era. The train ride is a 10-mile, 45-minute round trip. A unique part of this event will feature two railroad flatcars carrying military "cargo" that will be part of the consist of each train operating throughout the day.

The Military Transport Association of North Jersey is a non-profit organization for people interested in collecting, restoring and operating Historic U.S. Military Vehicles of all types. Check out the MTA's website at
