Remarks & Notes 
April 1958 was the last month of B&O passenger operatons out of the Jersey City terminal. John and his friend Bill Rosenberg spent that month trying to capture as much B&O passenger train action as possible between N.J. and Philly. Here a rarely color-photographed E6A leads a train at speed on the Reading past the depot in Manville. Perhaps someone in the RP.net viewing audience can I.D. this train.

In its heyday, B&O ran passenger service from Jersey City to Washington, Chicago and St. Louis. But it couldn't compete with the Pennsylvania or New York Central. By the time Amtrak was formed, its trains were a shadow of their former selves.
