Transportation Heritage Festival
Sunday September 21st, 10 am to 4 pm — Rain or Shine!
The URHS Transportation Heritage festival is back, and this year’s event is sure to be bigger and better than the last! On Sunday September 21, you can visit the United Railroad Historical Society for a fun and educational day with some of New Jersey’s rare and classic trains. For the third consecutive year, the URHS will open the gates of its normally-private Boonton Restoration Facility to showcase some of its historic collection. 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! More info
Liberty Historic Railway was established in January 2010 as a non-profit, public benefit corporation to jump-start the long-delayed stabilization and restoration of the deteriorated Central RR of NJ, Jersey City Terminal, Train Shed (both Train Shed and Terminal are on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places); to allow appropriate historic transportation equipment to be displayed and interpreted under the Shed; and to promote / provide rail shuttle connections within Liberty State Park to give incentive to the movement of people, not rubber tired vehicles, in, out, and around the Park. Our goal is to make it more convenient, as well as environmentally friendly, for the public to visit the Park via mass transit in lieu of the personal passenger automobile. As visitation grows, so will the pressure for more parking and road capacity within the Park, which could produce a detrimental effect for this majestic free and green open space - New Jersey’s largest urban state park.
