    Very interesting, thanks for posting.

    Wow, two bar cars for the train.

    Many railroads operated special trains for sporting events. A famous service was the PRR’s trains down to Philadelphia’s Municipal (JFK) Stadium for the Army Navy game. This continued under the Penn Central. The railroad had a freight yard there and used that as a terminal and servicing facility.

    Not long ago SIRT served a stadium near its St. George terminal.

    Also, many railroads operated special trains to horse races, carrying both fans and the horses. NJ Transit serves Monmouth Park. The Long Island Rail Road serves Belmont Park. The NYC subway once served Aqueduct track with express trains. In the past, PRSL trains served Atlantic City racetrack and Garden State racetrack (Cherry Hill); and B&O trains served Delaware Park.

    I rode the NJT train to Monmouth Park Racetrack on a few summer days back in 1984 frim Manasquan Station. Truly great times and I never had a losing day!
