Related Groups / Organizations
The New Jersey Museum of Transportation/Pine Creek Railroad is not funded by the state. They are a private, volunteer-operated, 501(c)3 not-for-profit, educational organization. This means that without your support, and without your train ticket purchases, they will not be able to continue providing their educational and entertaining service.
Since Pine Creek does "live" within the state property, they do work closely with the state parks department.
