The Morristown & Erie Railway partnered with Norfolk Southern’s Employee Appreciation Program to operate a special excursion (named the Lehigh Limited) celebrating the M&E’s 110th year of operation. 

The Morristown & Erie, officially formed on August 28, 1903 with the merger of the Whippany River Railroad and the Whippany & Passaic River Railroad, is the second-oldest continuously operating shortline railroad in the United States. To celebrate the occasion of its 110th anniversary, the M&E operated a rare-mileage excursion over existing NJ Transit commuter rail lines and Norfolk Southern freight rail lines in New Jersey and Pennsylvania on Saturday, August 24, 2013. This was the first major mainline public rail excursion operated in the region in over a decade.
