I live in south jersey and what I have seen in books they did and so did
conrail and RDG!
P.S. In 1970 the PRSL was experincing motive power problems with their old
baldwins and was going to purchase for a cost of $906,000 for 2 GP38s and 2
SW 1500s, but the proposal was rejected by PC and RDG mangement as too
costly. In the spring of '74 the PRSL found a buyer for a 900 arce track and
land it own near Pedricktown in Salam County which it was sold to Shell oil
co. for a new plastic plant. Seeing a new possible funds for new equiments.
They poposed to use 2 million of the 6.5million they got from selling the
land, to buy 4 GP38s, 3 SW1500s, and 5 add't N11e transfer Cabooses.
However, this was rejected too, by its owners because they knew Conrail was
coming and didn't want to spend money on something they would not have long.
This information comes from the book, By Rails to the Boardwalk, by Richard

PC: Looking for Penn Central Public TimetablesIm looking for the following Penn Central public timetables. If you could help me find any of the ones Ive listed, Id appreciate it.I have several extra Penn Central public timetables, perhaps we can work out a trade if you prefer, rather than selling any extras you have.The # after the date of the public timetables is the edition. At the bottom of the timetables front page theres usually a date and an edition number, depending on the particular timetable. The AMT/PC is for the Amtrak/Penn Central timetables published by the Penn Central after the Amtrak takeover in May 1971. The only one of those Im missing is the Form 79, dated 6/11/72, 2nd edition. Youll possibly find this one located with your Amtrak publics, rather than the Penn Central ones.Penn Central Public Timetables WantedForm 55/17/70 #21/24/71 #24/1/71 #2Form 64/28/68 #1, 2 & 310/27/68 R4/27/6910/27/7512/15/75Form 124/27/69 #3Form 148/1/68 TDIForm 154/28/68 #2Form 161/1/709/1/70Form 258/1/68 #2 & 34/27/69 #23/1/71 R #34/27/75 #2Form 2710/28/73 #2Form 364/27/69 #210/26/69 #13/1/71 R #210/29/72 #210/28/73 #2Form 374/28/68 #34/27/69 #210/26/69 #33/1/71 #15/12/7111/14/71 #2Form 402/19/68 #311/14/71 #24/30/72 #24/29/73 #210/28/73 #2 & 3Form 414/28/68 #212/15/72 #210/28/73 #3Form 6912/1/68 #2Form 706/9/69 (Paper)Form 715/1/71 #210/28/73 #2 & 3Form 724/27/69 #2 & 312/15/72 #2Form 764/27/69 #43/1/71 #2Form 7910/26/69 #26/11/72 #2 AMT/PCForm 924/28/68 #12/5/691/10/69 #2Form 9310/26/69 #210/1/70Form 1104/26/70Form 11112/13/71 Pass Fair On BackForm 2288/3/69Form 5007/15/68Army-Navy11/30/68 and 11/27/71PC-Riley Boosters Club of Indiana3/1/70, 7/1/70, & 10/1/70PC-Riley Boosters Club South Wind6/1/70PC-Riley Boosters Club James Whitcomb Riley3/1/70Metroliner and Erie Lacawanna-9/69Holiday12/30+31/71 RevisionHappy Holidays,Chuck
