Railroad Open House/Museum for a Day

posted Sep 15, 2017, 6:11 AM by Anthony Pisano
On Sunday, September 24th, 2017 (BOONTON DAY!) from 10 AM to 4 PM join the United Railroad Historical Society for a celebration of New Jersey’s railroad history.

Railroad Museum [for a day] is hosted by the United Railroad Historical Society of New Jersey, owners of the largest and most historic railroad collection in New Jersey. During this once-a-year event, the URHS Restoration Facility in Boonton, NJ will become New Jersey’s largest railroad museum.

For the sixth consecutive year, the URHS will open the gates of its normally-private Boonton NJ Restor­ation Facility to showcase some of its historic collection. Railroad Museum [for a day] will provide a rare, family-friendly opportunity to admire, explore, and go inside our historic trains and learn about their connection to the region we live in.

Visitors will be able to get up close and personal with vintage railroad equipment and well as visiting classic cars, trucks, buses, and military vehicles. Live music, food concessions, historical & educational presentations, and vendors of railroad-related souvenirs will round out a day that the whole family can enjoy!

West Boonton Yard: 104 Morris Avenue, Boonton, NJ 07005

ADMISSION – Adults (age 12+) – $5.00 Children (ages 3-11) – $3.00 Babies (ages 0-2) – FREE!
