For those keeping score, three of the six cars are shopped. Only the EL, CR and NJDOT cars remain in the train.

It also appears a second train is being made as there is a ML cab car in the MMC with Conrail decals on it. Maybe they'll clean this one before it's released to the public.

The CNJ is floating around buried in a motor set.
PRR 7036 was on a test train last week

Since 1993 I've lived in the Chicago suburbs. But I was born and raised in New Jersey and have always been interested in the railroads there.

My wish for true NJT heritage representation is to have a locomotive or cab car represent the Camden and Amboy Rail Road and Transportation Company and another to remember the New Jersey Rail Road and Transportation Company. The C&A opened rail transport between metro NYC and metro Philly and it, together with the NJRR, developed today's NE corridor through NJ years before the PRR stepped in. The PRR wouldn't have become the "standard railroad of the world" without the C&A and NJRR doing the initial development.

Those are my $0.02.

Wish they had wrapped locomotives. Would have been interesting to see an ALP-46 in Tuscan red with cat whiskers not to mention a GP-40 painted up CNJ again.
Done. CNJ paint (blue), PRR and EL wraps. Debuting at MMC Family Day.

Interesting that there's a black stripe on the body bevel for both the PRR and EL jobs. Does that have to do with the fact it's a wrap and perhaps hard to wrap that piece due to complex curves?

4212 was supposed to get Conrail,.. The NJDOT and PRSL are yet to be determined... Rumors of them being used on the tack on order of dual modes being assembled in Germany, but nothing confirmed.
