Saturday, December 8, 2012 the Jersey Central Chapter, in conjunction with Santa and Mrs. Claus is operating a Santa Claus Special for the kids. The train departs from Raritan NJ at 8:30 AM and also from the westbound platform (off North Avenue) of the Westfield station in Westfield NJ at 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. There is no afternoon departure from Raritan NJ. The trip features Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus along with a few of Santa's helpers. There are sing-a-longs, candy canes and coloring books for the kids. In addition, each car on the train features a drawing for a trainset; that's ten train sets per trip!
The trains operate west to Highbridge, NJ and back, a two hour trip. Santa pays a visit to each car and is more than happy to pose for pictures with the kids. This year, tickets are only $14.00 for adults and $12.00 for children age 1 to 12. Children under 1 are FREE. So join Santa and the crew for two hours of fun and Christmas joy!!!
