NEWARK,NJ -- Although they are not music conductors, four NJ TRANSIT train conductors – and one North Jersey Coast Line customer – will treat patrons to a free a cappella doo-wop concert Monday, December 6, to raise money for Railmen For Children’s annual Santa Claus Express, which brings joy and laughter to hundreds of special children every year.

Proceeds raised from Monday’s concert will go toward the expense of next year’s Santa Express. This year’s train will depart Hoboken Terminal at 10:30 a.m. on December 10 and travel to Harriman, N.Y., making stops at Paterson and Hawthorne. Hundreds of children from the Regional Day School of Jersey City and PS 31 of Jersey City will travel with Santa aboard the train.

Members of the media interested in attending may call Ken Hitchner at (973) 491- 7078.
