I have extra copies of all of the Metro Region employee timetables.
No. 1 dated 4-26-70 which does not have schedule pages except in MBS territory (branches)
No. 2 dated 2-1-71 which has schedule pages for all lines
No. 3 dated 1-10-72
No. 4 dated 7-17-72
No. 5 dated 7-2-73
No. 6 dated 12-8-74
No. 7 dated 1-12-76 which eventually became Conrail
Nos. 4-7 are loose leaf and I do not have any extra covers to spare at this time. I have copies both with general orders in
them and without the general orders and although I would have to make certain that I am not getting rid of my last copies
in any case, I can probably provide whatever you need. My prices will be the same as at the NHRHTA show in November
plus shipping.
Send me a private message if you are interested in any and I will check further.

The Metropolitan Region ETT's are fairly common and show up at train shows all the time. Also turn up on eBay all the time. There's a railroadiana show coming up in Clark, NJ on March 7, I'll keep an eye out for you. They usually go for anywhere from $7 to $15.
