Conrail commuter #5511
Title:  Conrail commuter #5511
Description:  A Conrail westbound local pulls up to the eastbound high platform. Passengers could make a cross platform change here to train #1812, the "Scoot" to Bayonne, a short lived service that ran from 1967 to 1978. Prior to 1967, CNJ trains had all run up the CNJ main to Bayone, and on to Jersey City. Then came the Aldene Plan, which included the purchase of the GP40Ps (painted in B&O blue), and a change of route, with trains heading east of here up the Lehigh Valley to Newark, and then on the Pennsylvania in to Penn Station. GP40P 3680 was was delivered 10/1968, and was rebuilt into a GP40PH-2 by Conrail.
