Even though Cabooses had fallen from widespread use by the end of Conrail, a number have survived in yard and local service for CSX and NS. Others have also moved into private hands.

When NJ Transit assumed control of all passenger operations in NJ from Conrail on January 1, 1983, a number of predecessor road passenger equipment and locomotives remained active for many years.

As with NJ Transit, SEPTA assumed control of all passenger operations from Conrail also in the early 1980's. Many of the former Reading and PC equipment and locomotives used in commuter service remained in active service for many years. Many of the Silverliner IV's remain active even into 2015.

This gallery chronicles the commuter equipment that survived Conrail's early years of passenger operations. Stations built by predecessor roads that remained active are also included.
