Remarks & Notes 
Nearly 40 years ago, while a 15-year-old pup, I got up early one morning and went into work with my dad. He dropped me at Penn Station Newark and I rode a Conrail North Jersey Coast Line train to South Amboy. The next train to arrive at the station after I got off my train was this one, with a pair of Penn Central E8s leading the ragamuffin string of coaches.
