Reading "Doodlebug"         
Reading Brill Motor Car #4077 is seen in front of the grand three-story Victorian depot at Skillman, NJ. Just behind the "doodlebug" is the station's semaphore passenger controlled flag stop signal, used by passengers to request a train stop. Reading had a small fleet of doodlebugs working the New York Branch. #4077 was delivered by J.G. Brill in February of 1927. It was powered by a Cummins 250 H.P. diesel with a tractive effort of 10,100 lbs. It sat 32 in the passenger compartment and also had sections for parcel service and R.P.O.
