About Railmen for Children

New Jersey Transit conductors and train engineers established Railmen for Children 30 years ago to bring joy to special needs and less fortunate children each year. Today, Railmen for Children conducts fundraising activities throughout the year in order to fund a Santa train.

Every year Railmen for Children invites local schools and organizations consisting of less fortunate and handicapped children on a Santa train. Teachers ask the children to write Christmas wish lists to Santa; those letters are then delivered to Railmen for Children. Railmen for Children does everything in its power to grant the wishes of the children and Santa delivers the gifts to the children on the train ride.
