[CRRNJ] Tri-State Meeting April 21, 2016 - flier

Rich Taylor
Pennsylvania - Reading Seashore Lines in the 1960's

Thursday, April 21, 2016, 7:00 PM
at the Bickford Theater of the Morris Museum

6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ 07960

The April 21st meeting will feature a presentation by long time Tri-State
member and photographer, Rich Taylor. 

To help us appreciate what visitors will be seeing at the URHS Spring Open
House on the Cape May Seashore Lines at Tuckahoe on April 23rd, long-time
member Rich Taylor will give is a vintage look at the PRSL. He'll show us
the era between the 1960s and 1976 when the PRSL entered Conrail. His trips
to Atlantic City and family vacations in Wildwood, when rail passenger
service was still offered to the Jersey Cape, gave Rich opportunities to
photograph the trains in many locations. The PRSL was a most interesting
railroad, formed in 1933 when the PRR's West Jersey & Seashore and the
Reading's Atlantic City lines were combined to reduce duplicate services.
And it's no coincidence that these names resemble those on a Monopoly game
