||Reading "Motor Train"
||Reading Brill Motor Car #4079 makes a stop at Skillman. This gas-electric doodlebug was utilized in Port Reading to Trenton service. Passengers could make a cross platform transfer in West Trenton to a Reading MU for the ride to Reading Terminal in Center City Philadelphia. This unit could seat 32 and had a 11 foot baggage area and a 10 foot RPO. By this time, the Offial Guide shows this only running Bound Brook to Trenton. The auto is the Freericks family's 1933 Plymouth PC Business Coupe. CKF refered to this doodlebug as a Reading Railway "motor train" in his notes.
