SMS Penn-Jersey Rail Lines Penn Warner Industrial Park Morrisville PA November 9 2005
Most of SMS Penn-Jersey Rail Lines' tracks are in New Jersey, but they also operate in an industrial park near the Conrail Shared Assets Morrisville Yard.
The power for the operation is SLRS 301, which was built as Baldwin S12 demonstrator #1200 before being sold to the Rock Island, becoming RI #758. Later it went on to work as Southwest Forrest Ind. #758, ASARCO #1 and Doe Run Co. #1, where it acquired the nickname "Old Blue" which, despite its Reading Company inspired paint scheme, it still wears today.
Also on the property are a trio of cabooses: Reading NMk 92857 built in June of 1937
Pennsylvania Class N5C cabin car 478009 (aka Penn Central and Conrail 23809)
and transfer caboose NYC/PC/CR and now Penn Jersey 18100.
