Old Station Museum opens, complete with caboose

July 20, 2018 by  

A promising outing for Bloomingdale’s families is this season’s exhibit at the Old Station Museum that will feature donations from the estate of Hollis C. Bachmann.

Bachman had constructed a model of a trolley, the North Jersey Rapid Transit’s Trolley, which many may have recalled seeing in the museum’s main building. He later built a number of other model trollies, which Kay Doody, his niece, has donated to the museum to debut later this month.

The Old Station Museum came into being in 1967 and is in the Erie Railroad’s original Mahwah Station. Railroad memorabilia, donated by collectors, can be viewed at the museum in addition to a recently restored Erie cupola caboose from 1929. Visitors can also see a model of the Erie railroad system made to scale, as well as old photographs of Mahwah railroad and the rest of the Erie mainline.

Often, print shops partner with museums to provide one of the most significant parts of events such as this one – the postcards and brochures taken home to remember the experience.

Located in Mahwah at 1871 Old Station Lane, the Old Station Museum is less than a half an hour’s drive from Bloomingdale. Admission for those over 16 is $3 and free for those less than 16 years old. The event takes place 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm on this Sunday, July 22. Guests are reminded that credit cards are not accepted in the museum.
