NJT GG1 4879 leads a line of coaches
Title:  NJT GG1 4879 leads a line of coaches
Description:  Conrail operated NJ commuter lines under contract from NJDOT until January 1, 1983 when NJ Transit assumed control. With former PC providing GG-1s, E-8As, and a few E-7As, great passenger consists like this scene were available in NJ for many years. On a hot and bright July day in 1981, GG-1 4879 pulls through South Amboy with a string of coaches. CR retired their freight fleet of GG-1s in 1979, but the NJDOT-contracted GG-1s 4872-4884 saw their operating days extended to the fall of 1983.
