When were MP-54s finally phased out on
commuter service? There is a neat Green MP at Strassburg and it got me
interested. Did SEPTA or NJDoT or Conrail use them after PC?
I can't think of a source for an exact date, but I believe a few
MP-54s ran until 1980 or so. Don't look too hard for Conrail painted
commuter equipment. They were formed as a freight railroad,
but did operate passenger service for various transportation
authorities in their early years. They ran a lot of trains without
owning them. SEPTA and NJDOT owned them. I believe they
were gone by the time NJTransit was formed.
Check out the August Trains magazine for a lot more on NJTransit.
