Great shots!  Thanks!

There's speculation the next Heritage units are going to be a Penn Central and a Conrail, both handled commuter runs prior to the formation of NJ Transit but there's nothing concrete about it.

'76,

Two items:

1. Happy Veteran's Day and a sincere and grateful "Thank you for your service!"

2. While not perfect, across the Hudson Metro-North has a Conrail heritage unit chugging away, so NJT will hopefully catch up!
