That's great stuff!One screen shot that sums for some SSers and others this past weekend in NNJ:
- Bergen County Toys for Tots Train on Saturday
- Pearl Harbor Rememberance at the USS Ling on Sunday
There's a whole thread dedicated to 2014 Toys For Tots activities here on the SS Forums....I don't personally. If you search YouTube for Toys for Tots Train 2014you'll find several other rail fan videos of this train, some with the car names clearly displayed. A Google of those specific car names will likely return some info. Rail fans are big on that stuff.
We're not using a boxcar this year. Besides the locomotive, our train consisted of 4 cars for 2014.That's great stuff!
Looks like some historic cars being pulled by that engine:
- all of them; the boxcar and the two passenger cars
Do you know anything about them?
Very cool; thank you. I figured there might be somebody train-savvy who would know these kinds of details, because years ago I knew a "train nut" (term for that?). and he would always know all these things (to a remarkable level of detail). I don't know the details myself but like to hear from those that do; thanks a million, Jersey!We're not using a boxcar this year. Besides the locomotive, our train consisted of 4 cars for 2014.
In addition to providing the cars needed to make the Toys for Tots Train a success, the URHS also supplies many of the volunteers that work the train each day of our collection. We couldn't make this happen without them, or without the generous cooperation of the railroads involved.
