Off Goes the Santa Train
Title:  Off Goes the Santa Train
Description:  The annual "Railmen for Children" Santa Train departs Hoboken for Newark, The Oranges, Denville and Montclair with a trainload of children from schools all across the area. The children aboard this train are treated with gifts, music, food and a visit from Santa. The entire trip is made possible by the employee operated Railmen for Children charity and cooperation by NJ Transit who has been providing a train to the event every year since 1983. The equipment used and the people involved have changed over the years but one thing remains the same: The Santa Drumhead. This hand-painted drumhead has been affixed to the cab car of every Railmen for Children Santa Train since the very beginning and will continue to make its annual appearance for many years to come!

Generational Gap
Title:  Generational Gap
Description:  Two generations of equipment share time together in the depot. A battle-scarred GP40 with nearly 50 years running and millions of miles of both freight and passenger experience from Penn Central, Conrail and NJ Transit rumbles away on Track 3 with the new generation of equipment staring it down from a distance. For now these tired old soldiers continue to provide service but for how much longer? With every passing year the equipment on New Jersey's commuter lines becomes less and less diverse. These tired old geeps won't be around forever. Especially with a recent announcement that NJ Transit has ordered an additional 17 ALP45 dual-modes from Bombardier. It feels like just last week I was coming to work in Hoboken for an afternoon assignment to a house with a dozen or more of them rumbling away ready for their westbound journey to wherever.

By the Tower
Title:  By the Tower
Description:  Lately one can almost count on Train #1160 to run with an engine east out asking as a "cab car." Like it has done for the last few months #1160 rumbles by BJ Tower as it arrives at Rutherford on the way to Hoboken.

Junk Salad
Title:  Junk Salad
Description:  One of NJ Transit's four GP40-2s rumbles under the skylit sheds at Newark Penn Station on Track A. The 49-year old work horse was added to the lead of Train #5416 at Raritan Yard after a mechanical failure rendered the cab car inoperable. The mixed trainset is an odd one these days as much more care has gone into keeping Comet Vs all together out of Hoboken with Comet IIM and Comet IV coaches being used primarily on the Newark division.
