I don't know about northern NJ, but when I was driving home from Cape 
May on Saturday, I saw a PRSL RDC (?) parked along route 9 (I think), 
along with an assortment of other interesting rolling stock.  However, 
the car was moving too quickly to get a good look at the numbers.  It's 
parked right across from what looks to be a burnt-down warehouse.
