Conrail Crusador inbound at Bound Brook NJ
Title:  Conrail Crusador inbound at Bound Brook NJ
Description:  Conrail Crusador from Reading Terminal in Philly to Newark, picks up speed after a Bound Brook stop. The Reading Crusado began 02/22/1938. By 1977 it was a SEPTA supported Conrail commuter run between Reading Terminal and Penn Station Newark. The lead RDC3 began life on the Boston & Maine 2/1958. She was sold to the Reading 8/1966, and then to SEPTA 5/1976. When this service was cancelled, she went to the Blue Mtn & Reading in 1984, and was badly damaged in 1987.

Reading RDCs
Title:  Reading RDCs
Description:  One of the more obscure parts of NJ Transits operations was a pair of Newark-Philadelphia trains to Reading Terminal. There were two pairs, the Crusader and the Wall Street, which ran Philly-Newark in the morning, and returned to Philly in the afternoon. These were vestiges of once hourly service behind streamlined Pacifics that ran to and from Jersey City via CNJ and Reading. By 1981 this service was running with RDCs from Newark as part of the Aldene Plan, which got all CNJ trains out of their Jersey City terminal and consolidated passenger runs out of Newark on the PRR. This was a fun little train, having a cadre of regulars who enjoyed a lively time on the afternoon runs. They moved, too. I rode in the rear cab for part of the trip over the CNJ to Bound Brook; we were making 65 MPH. This was the Crusader boarding at Newark.
