On Sunday my uncle and I went to the Whippany Railway Museum. Many props to the volunteers/staff there for maintaining such a clean museum site. The cars there were kept in excellent condition.

Thanks guys!

 

Is that a Comet in the background of the third picture?

 

I think so. I'm not up on things that aren't NYCTA/LIRR; I bet Andy or Ken could give you a better answer.

 

There were fliers around the museum advertising caboose rides...I suppose they lash up the 6 or 7 cabooses (cabeese?) to the RS-1 and go for a few foamy trips up and down the spur.

Those are Comets. The Morristown and Erie keeps them there. They are used on excursions from the musuem among other things, the M&E also stores alot of private cars there as seen from your photos.

 

Edit:

Those are Comet I low doors also known as "sliders".

Heres a shot I took not so long ago at the museum of 1:
