Remarks & Notes 
The Train of Tomorrow visits Elizabeth NJ on its tour of the county. The location is listed as Baltimore & Ohio Freight Yard.... but is actually the small CNJ LCL yard just east of the PRR crossing in downtown. This was a concept train built by General Motors to promote the sales of diesels. It was made up of just invented dome cars, the invention of Cyrus R. Osborn, general manager of EMD at the time. Brand new in 1947, the four-car train had a 28 month tour of the country before being sold to Union Pacific.
