||Balitmore & Ohio's "Capitol Limited"
||Train #6, The "Capitol Limited" is on its way through Belle Mead, New Jersey, on the New York Division of the Reading. It is lead by E6 (A) #52 delivered in June of 1941, and EB #52a (paired sets shared numbers) delivered in June of 1937. The train ran Chicago, Pittsburgh, Washington, Philadelphia, Jersey City. This train included an RPO-baggage car, 3 coaches, a diner, 3 sleepers and a parlor car. The first coach came from train 25 "The Columbian" and was a lightweight streamliner. He'd have been "tearin' 'em up." The employees' timetable of 1948 lists The Cap as running 11.5 miles from "GH" Tower near Pennington to Belle Mead in 9 minutes, an average of 76.7mph, then from Belle Mead.
