Anyone interested in establishing a forum for this nice little museum? I would help moderate if need be.  
 
It's really a nice little museum that offers excursions. Located off RT 10 in Whippany, the museum offer a lot to see. Current excursions utilize the M&E.

  How often do they run excursions on the M&E? If they run 'em often during the summer it'd be cool to check out the museum next summer.  I'd been kinda turned off because it was a long drive from where we were railfanning in Pennsylvania and I didnt know they ran excursions.  Are those FL9's?  I think the museum should restore 4039 and operate it on the excursions on the M&E  After all, it DID run excursions on that line when the MCC existed.

Model train setup. No sure of the guage but they're very big.
 
A nice touch.
