|CKF's notes only identify this train as a Baltimore & Ohio passenger train. I am assuming it is The National Limited based on the shadows and head end cars (but am still working on solving the puzzle as the lack of streamlined cars impugns this idea greatly). If so, this was a Jersey City to St. Louis train. The westbound is about to pass under the telltales for Camp Meeting Road. Power is EA #51 (delivered May 1937) and an unidentified E6(B). It looks as if the E units are blowig smoke, although the angle of the smoke may mean it's actually just a flaw in the image (like the streaks clearly are).
