NYCTF excursion trip anyone?

Recommended Posts

Anyone want to go to atlantic city via ACES or (NJT) + :septa: + (NJT)?

 

If we do this i could book the trip a few weeks before at NYP with whoever wants to go. Online booking is limited to 8 people at a time, so that would require me to collect $ and book 8 people at a time. That could work better if it's like 25 people, but i want to get at least 50.

 

I would like to try to get a plan finalized by the end of april with itinerary.

 

As far as payment is concerned, whoever can pitch in more, can help those who can't put up as much.

 

Any thoughts?

I might want to but I doubt I'm old enough to enter the gambling areas.

 

Most of the trip would be the train ride. It wouldn't be inside the casinos, the boardwalk is amazing, has many shops restaurants etc etc. :)

What month is the trip? I hope it's in July or August.

If it's ACES, I'm not going. I don't think we should railfan an expensive train, since what's the purpose of it? Getting pictures of ACES should be included, but not the train itself.

Good point made.

Why Atlantic City anyway? What is luring you there?

 

Try to do this on a weekend to reduce crowding

 

A better trip would be:

 

Start at NYP

(E) to WTC

PATH to Exchange Place

HBLR to EITHER Tonnelle Av. or Bayonne and back to HOB

Railfan Hoboken

:mb: to Secaucus

Railfan Secaucus

:nec: to Elizabeth

Railfan Elizabeth

:nec: to NYP.

I hear you, however this is an excursion trip not 100% railfanning trip, like a "lets all get together and do something fun". Yes railfaning will be part of it, but i expect to go swimming etc.

 

The :ac: is unique in that it operates from philadelphia, and is largely scenic, with interesting locomotives usually not assigned to newark or hoboken divisions.
