Santa has been riding the rails between Tuckahoe and Richland aboard vintage railcars owned by Cape May Seashore Lines.
CAPE MAY SEASHORE LINES has been escorting Santa on the rails of South Jersey the past few weeks. Catch a ride with Santa aboard vintage passenger cars that used to ply the same rails, hauling visitors to and from the Jersey Shore on a daily basis years ago. Santa Express trains depart from nearby Tuckahoe and Richland Stations through December 23rd, with an additional Winter Express on Saturday, December 29th (minus Santa, who will be back at the North Pole by then.) Adult fares begin at $18 with child fares beginning at $12. Learn more here: http://
THE SAILBOAT that was stranded on Sea Isle’s beach for four days has been pulled off the beach, and was towed to a marina in Longport for repairs. The captain of the sailboat, who lives aboard the boat, was enroute to Key West to spend the winter before running aground last weekend. After repairs are made he intends to complete his journey to Florida.
