Conrail GP38-2, 8283, leased to NJDOT for extra power, and is assigned here, to a former CNJ Raritan Line train, at Penn Station Newark. The lightweight cars are former Missouri Pacific, and Texas & Pacific, ACF-built, aluminum coaches, which were train-lined for push-pull service, and so had a heavyweight, CNJ, arch-roof, cab/coach on the West end, which would lead this train, out of town.
