Cape May Seashore Lines Cape May Courthouse and Rio Grande New Jersey
A pair of ex-Boston and Maine RDC-9's, numbered 6903 and 6904, sit on a siding north of Cape May Courthouse. The cab end windows were blanked out when they were converted to coaches by MBTA. August 23 2004
Five of the OOS ex-PRSL, ex-NJT RDC-1's are stored at Rio Grande just to the south. September 3 2004
Some such as M402 retained their Pennsylvania Reading Seashore Lines letterboard but show no markings from its days as NJT 5180. September 3 2004
RDC-1 PRSL M405 also is sans NJT 5182 markings. September 3 2004
Some wear only the NJT markings with their zebra striped ends. This is presumably ex-PRSL M411 ex-NJT 5188, as ex-PRSL M408 ex-NJT 5185 is undergoing restoration. September 3 2004
Another RDC-1, ex-PRSL M413 and ex-NJT 5189, wears markings from all three owners, PRSL, NJT and CMSL. September 3 2004
While another, ex-PRSL M409 ex-NJT 5186, has only CMSL on the side number board. September 3 2004
RDC-1 M410, the former NJT 5187, is one of the restored units, here stored in the yard. September 3 2004
RDC-1 M407, the former NJT 5184, was in use at the end of the season. September 3 2004
