The New Jersey Central's Blue Comet passenger train service operated from 1929 to 1941, on a route from the New York metropolitan area to Atlantic City, in the midst of the Great Depression. Despite this backdrop and stiff competition from other railroads, it survived and established an enduring legacy in the annals of New Jersey rails. This book contains memorable images, many from private archival photograph collections, showing the remarkable history of this classic train and of the hardworking and dedicated people who made it all possible. The legendary Blue Comet train no longer streaks through the pines of New Jersey. However, its memory still lives on through timeless images and the sustained efforts of New Jersey historical societies and preservation organizations that maintain its legacy.
