PORT JERVIS, NJ — Three historic General Electric 44-tonners built in the 1940s will be restored to operating condition thanks to a partnership of four non-profit organizations, the groups announced on January 26. Collaborating on the project are Operation Toy Train of New York, Tri-State Railway Historical Society, Danbury Railroad Museum and Delaware & Ulster Railroad.
Each of these organizations owns a 44-tonner; three will run again and one will serve as a parts source. The locomotives that will be fully restored are New Haven 0814, Middletown & New Jersey 2 and Hoboken Manufacturers Railroad 700, owned by DRM, OTT and TSRHS, respectively. Each of them needs at least one major internal part, all of which are available in the parts unit.
That engine was built as Western Maryland 76 and was later operated by Delaware & Ulster, which has donated it in exchange for support and assistance from three organizations in conducting its own repair and restoration efforts. The 76 is largely intact but in poor condition after decades of outdoor storage and avoids being scrapped thanks to this project.
“These donated services and the efforts of these experienced volunteers will save the Delaware & Ulster tens of thousands of dollars in expenditures over the next several years, far more than the sale or scrap value of our inoperable locomotive,” said Todd Pascarella, D&U general manager.
Among the projects D&U is looking forward to is the restoration of its Brill Model 250 doodlebug, built in 1928 as New York Central M-206, later M-405. It arrived on D&U in June 1983 and was popular while in service.
After the needed parts are harvested, the Delaware & Ulster locomotive will receive a cosmetic restoration for display at the Port Jervis (NY) Transportation History Center in the paint scheme of New York, Ontario & Western, a local Fallen Flag known as “the Old & Weary” long before its demise in 1957. Its first diesels were five 44-tonners built in 1941-42.
“We are grateful that we’ve been able to work with three other amazing organizations to not only restore our own M&NJ 2 to operation but ensure that every piece of the 76 will serve a purpose going forward,” said Rudy Garbely, a director for Operation Toy Train of New York. “Collaborative efforts like this are the future of railroad preservation, and it’s an honor to work with this fantastic group of leaders in the industry to achieve a common goal.”
Plans call for major work to begin late this summer, when the 76 will be trucked from Roxbury, NY, to its new home in Port Jervis. There, volunteers from each organization will work together to remove its internal parts. They will also work together on the installation of parts on each recipient.
New Haven 0814 was built in February 1945, and at one time was used to shuttle employees between New Haven station and Cedar Hill yard. It was sold to General Dynamics in the late-1950s, which deployed it at its Electric Boat division as “Carol.” It was joined in 1974 by “Diane,” the ex-Union Pacific 903999, built in 1947 as 44-ton demonstrator GE 1399 and the only 44-tonner purchased by UP. Both were donated to DRM by General Dynamics in 2006. The currently-operational 1399 will benefit from the deal as well as it will get some spare parts from D&U 76.
“We have been searching for spare parts for 1399 and the missing parts to restore our New Haven 0814 for years,” said Jose Alves, DRM president. “Being able to share this opportunity and restore two other locomotives at the same time is an amazing bonus, and it speaks to the overwhelmingly supportive nature of the people involved that we were able to bring this many organizations together successfully to make this project a reality.”
Middletown & New Jersey 2 was built in 1947 as American Cyanamid 5, assigned to the company’s Calco Chemical Division in Bridgewater, NJ, where it handled cars to and from Central Railroad of New Jersey, Reading and Lehigh Valley. It later went to the M&NJ in the 1960s, where it worked for decades. The railroad was purchased by Regional Rail LLC in 2009 and the engine was assigned to an East Penn switching contract in Manheim, Pa., its final assignment prior to being acquired by OTT in a 2021 deal with Regional Rail that also saw another 44-tonner, Tyburn Railroad 400, go to Tri-State Railroad Historical Society. That engine was built as Hoboken Manufacturers 700 in 1947. It was moved to the United Railroad Historical Society’s Boonton, N.J., facility and is being restored by Tri-State volunteers.
Each of the three organizations has launched fundraising campaigns to cover the restoration costs for their respective locomotives, including the acquisition and installation of parts salvaged from 76 and the repainting of each to its historically accurate paint scheme. Grants, corporate donations, and contributions from private donors are welcomed. To learn more about the project or to donate, visit www.44Tonner.org.
A group of rail non-profit organizations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut are joining forces to restore to operation three GE 44-ton diesels, all produced in the mid-1940s.The locomotives — Middletown & New Jersey Railroad No. 2; Hoboken Manufacturers Railroad No. 7; and New Haven Railroad No. 0814 — are currently owned by Operation Toy Train of New York, The Tri-State Railway Historical Society in Boonton, N.J., and the Danbury (Conn.)

A group of rail non-profit organizations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut are joining forces to restore to operation three GE 44-ton diesels, all produced in the mid-1940s.
The locomotives — Middletown & New Jersey Railroad No. 2; Hoboken Manufacturers Railroad No. 7; and New Haven Railroad No. 0814 — are currently owned by Operation Toy Train of New York, The Tri-State Railway Historical Society in Boonton, N.J., and the Danbury (Conn.) Railway Museum, respectively. None are currently operational but are in good condition and are considered excellent candidates for restoration to operating status. Meanwhile, heritage railroad Delaware & Ulster has another GE 44-tonner, former Western Maryland Railway No. 76, that has long been out of service but is largely intact.
The Delaware & Ulster has offered to donate that locomotive as a parts source toward restoration of the other three units. In return, volunteers from the other organizations are providing support for the Delaware & Ulster’s own repair and restoration, including an analysis of a J.G. Brill Co. doodlebug built in 1928 for the New York Central.
The donated services and volunteer expertise “will save the Delaware & Ulster tens of thousands of dollars in expenditures over the next several years, far more than the sale or scrap value of our inoperable locomotive,” Delaware & Ulster General Manager Todd Pascarella said in a press release. “We are greatly appreciative of the connections and knowledge that this partnership has already afforded us, and we look forward to continuing to foster these new, positive relationships.”
Operation Toy Train, Tri-State, and Danbury will split the cost to move No. 76 from its current location in Roxbury, N.Y., to the Port Jervis (N.Y.) Transportation History Center, home of the Operation Toy Train equipment. There, components will be removed and distributed to the three organizations. Danbury also has an operational 44-tonner, GE demonstrator No. 1399, that will receive some parts.
“We have been searching for spare parts for No. 1399 and the missing parts to restore … No. 814 for years,” said Danbury President Jose Alves. “Being able to share this opportunity and restore two other locomotives at the same time is an amazing bonus, and it speaks to the overwhelmingly supportive nature of the people involved that we were able to bring this many organizations together.”
Plans are for the shell of No. 76 to be displayed at Port Jervis in the colors of the New York, Ontario & Western Railway. The three organizations restoring the 44-tonners have each launched fundraising campaigns, and are soliciting grants, corporate donations, and contributions from private donors.

MONTVILLE, NJ – According to the laws of Montville Township, the township committee works part-time, while the township administrator is charged with working full-time to carry out the laws that the committee has laid out. June Hercek is that administrator.
Hercek started her position on Jan. 1, 2022 after serving for eight years as assistant administrator under Victor Canning. Her duties, she said, as administrator, include participating in township committee meetings, preparing, submitting and recommending the budget to the township committee (both the operating and the capital budgets), and she’s responsible for hiring personnel. She’s also in charge of purchasing for the township.
Hercek grew up in the town of Boonton and when she went to college, a professor told her she would be good in public administration.

“It was the best advice I ever received from a professor,” she said. “I knew from then that this is what I wanted to do. I think I’m unique in that sense because I think fewer people are going that traditional route, to go into municipal government. We find that many of them are from different paths here. I knew from a young age it’s truly what I wanted to do. I have always known that my ultimate goal was to be an administrator.”
Hercek’s roots run deep in Montville, having grandparents who lived here and both parents grew up here, too.
“I would visit my grandparents here and I was envious of them living here,” she said. “It’s such a great place. The amenities are second to none – it has so much to offer regardless of your age or your background – there’s something for everyone. It has excellent schools. It has excellent recreation facilities, parks, playgrounds, and picturesque open space that I always found attractive about the town. It’s a great place. I love how the residents feel and their attitude toward the township – this is a very vibrant town and I love being a part of that.”
But the slow way that government works is not her favorite part of her job.
“I wish I could change some aspects of how government works to make it easier and more efficient,” she said. “Unfortunately, New Jersey has very strict rules that make procuring more difficult. I wish the rules were easier. I wish we could move things through quicker. I wish the rules were easier to work with, especially as it works with procuring. For example, the state has made it more difficult to do construction work because they need a state-issued certification. The rules that New Jersey has put into place have made it harder and harder to hire contractors to do construction work in town. It definitely keeps us from moving projects through quicker, or doing projects more efficiently. It’s limiting the contractors or the vendors that we can deal with. It doesn’t help us do our jobs as efficiently as we could. It has to be changed by the legislature.”
Hercek lives in Boonton Township with her husband. She has a daughter who is 22 who is a senior at Cornell University, a son, 19, who is a freshman at Lehigh University, and a son who is 16 who is a junior at Mountain Lakes High School.
Hercek is extremely happy in her position and loves working in Montville. She is happy with her “bosses,” too.
“I love to work with the governing body,” she said. “I think we all work well as a group. It’s nice to be in that position. I love to come to work every day – I truly love coming here every day. I truly love helping people. I love public administration. What I also love about municipal government is that things are always changing and every day is unique and that’s exciting. It’s comfortable and it’s nice in this building. I’ve worked in other municipalities and you feel relaxed and comfortable when you come here. I was so excited to get the position. I definitely worked hard for it. But it was worth it.”
