The Historic Tuckahoe Train Station will be the site for the second annual Transportation Heritage Festival on Saturday, April 28. The theme for this year’s event is “Railroads and the Military” and will feature train rides, military vehicles, historic buses, cars and a special motorcar train ride. The family-friendly festival will also have a 1950s era Pennsylvania Railroad military display train, a scale live steam train, vendors, a model train layout, historic motorcars and much more.
The festival is open between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and is being brought to you by the Historical Preservation Society of Upper Township and the United Railroad Historical Society of NJ, and through the generous support of the Cape May Seashore Lines. The proceeds will help the two historical societies continue their outstanding efforts to preserve the rich history of New Jersey for generations to come.
Tickets for the festival are just $10 per person or $25 per family, and include access to everything including the train ride. You can upgrade your train ride seating to first class and ride in a lounge car for just $5 more. Tickets can be purchased in advance with your credit card by visiting www.urhs.org or on the day of the festival at the main entrance. There are limited tickets available and are sure to sell fast, so don’t delay!
The station is located at 31 Mill Rd. in Tuckahoe. It will be open for everyone to enjoy and will serve as the gathering point for the hourly train rides. The first train departs at 10:30 a.m. and the last at 3:30 p.m. Seating on the train will be on a first come, first served basis, except in first class which can be reserved.
