RDG 614 "The Crusader"
Title:  RDG 614 "The Crusader"
Description:  A streamlined Pacific GS1sas leads The Crusader, train #614 (the afternoon eastbound) past the Skillman depot. I'm told by a fellow who enhanced the pic that this is the #117. In 1947, the Crusader ran twice a day between Philadelphia and Jersey City. The trainset has an observation car on either end. The eastbound side is now tucked into an extention off the tender. In JC, the engine will be turned and placed on the other end, but the rest of the trainset is not turned.
