OUR EQUIPMENT

Through the generosity of several railroads, railcar lessors, and donors, Operation Toy Train owns seven of its own railcars for use on its annual collection train. Click on each car below to learn more!


Baggage Car - This car, originally used to carry passengers’ luggage on long-distance passenger trains, is now used by Operation Toy Train volunteers to sort, stow, and pack toys en-route between the train’s stops.

Boxcars - These cars were originally built to haul all kinds of boxed freight and cargo across the United States. Operation Toy Train’s three boxcars are now used to haul toys that were sorted in the baggage car from the train’s collection points to the Marines.

Cabooses - Originally used as mobile offices for train crews, Operation Toy Train’s three classic cabooses are now used to carry our volunteers between the train’s collection points.
