PRSL RDC Roster

Post by liftedjeep » Sat Mar 18, 2017 12:34 am

I decided to assemble a current roster of the 12 RDCs that were once owned by the PRSL. A “Where Are They Now”, if you will. Most of my information has come from the West Jersey Chapter publication "Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines", and some from research I've done online. The majority of the pictures shared are from my own collection.



Please feel free to comment or correct any information that doesn't seem to fit, but I'm fairly certain that most if not all is accurate.



The list is as follows...



M-402 (ex NJT #5180): Built in 1950, rebuilt in 1980. Currently owned by Cape May Seashore Lines, awaiting restoration in Tuckahoe, NJ:

M-403 (ex NJT #5181): Built in 1950. Currently owned by the Central New York Chapter of the NRHS, awaiting repairs at the Martisco Station Museum in Marcellus, NY: (1999 photo by R. Gorddard. 2009 photo by P. Koprowski)

M-403 is still awaiting it’s next project, it’s not in bad shape but sitting hasn’t helped. The M-402 and M-408 belong to United Railroad Historical Society and are stored on CMSL. I do t know the ownership on the others but I’m sure Tony owns most of them. He’s a really nice guy so just ask and he will probably tell you who owns what down there.
