All of us at the Whippany Railway Museum and the Morristown & Erie Railway want your visit to be fun and educational. We work very hard to provide a safe and enjoyable site for you and your family to vist as well as learn from the past. On days when the Museum is open we hope you will explore the vintage railroad equipment on display in the Whippany Yard, but a note of Caution and Safety must be used.
Keep in mind the old saying: "Any time is train time." Many visitors do not realize that our Museum site is located on a live, active rail line. It is not a playground or a public park. A train could pass through at ANY time. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO STOP A TRAIN QUICKLY. Even at the slow speeds trains utilize while running through our site, the engineer will not be able to stop the train "on a dime", even with an emergency application of the brakes.
PLEASE HELP US CONTINUE OUR PERFECT SAFETY RECORD BY OBSERVING THIS IMPORTANT RULE:
KEEP OFF THE TRACKS AT ALL TIMES!
