Sorry gentlemen, My error. The code on the outer carton containing the 3 cars is
6-15554. I bought them because of the rubber bellows between the cars and the passenger models in the windows. I didn't see many heavyweights with the bellows - they add a more authentic look. I'd like to sell the cars with the GG1.

Hey Big Ed, is Central Railroad of New Jersey the same as the old Jersey Central which had as its logo the Statue of Liberty's head surrounded by a halo of stars?

Yep, it's the same RR, just a different name. The official name is Central Railroad of New Jersey.

Hi Gunrunner. I'm a Jersey boy - Newark exactly. We had family in Red Bank near a North/South PRR mainline between Newark and Bay Head N.J. At the end of the dead end street they lived on was a path that led to a Jersey Central maintenance yard complete with roundhouse, switching engines, switching tower etc. A magical place for a young boy. Saw my first Camelback steamer there. Wow. If the family couldn't find me around the house they always knew where to look LOL.

Well, if you go to the Statue of Liberty from Jersey, you'll visit the old Jersey Central station in Liberty State Park, it's a pretty nice building. We did the 377 steps up the Statue last year, good heart exercise!

If I ever get back to N.J. I just may do that. We Live in St. Augustine, Fl. now. I was there last some 10 years or so ago for a 50th year high school class reunion. First time in
over 40 years plus that I had visited the city. Lots of changes. Some places I didn't even
recognize. Visited the statue of Liberty many many years ago. A wonderful experience for
anyone whose family immigrated to the America.

Well, I suspect at some time in the past, most folks except the Indians immigrated here. In my case, it was my grandparents on one side and great grandparents on the other side.

I remember as a kid you could take a ferry owned by one of the railroads from lower Manhattan over to their terminal in New Jersey where they had a fantastic, to a kid, model railroad. I don't remember if it was CNJ or Erie or Lackawanna. Maybe one of you remember it.
