Veterans Locomotive

On Saturday, September 8 this locomotive, (with special artwork designed by Rudy Garbely), was dedicated to Honor NJ Veterans at a ceremony at Roxbury on the Chester Branch.  Participants in the ceremony included the US Marine Corps Reserve (with vehicles and honor guard from Picatinny Arsenal); Military Transport Assn. of No. Jersey (with several vintage military vehicles on display); Tri-State Railway Historical Society (which staffed the trains giving free public rides); and Operation Toy Train (the coordinator of the annual Toys For Tots collection trains).  Chesapeake & Delaware LLC is the parent company of the Dover & Rockaway River RR which operates the three freight lines owned by Morris County.  Liberty Historic Railway has been a sponsor of  MTA and OTT for some time and has provided grants for special projects.
