[Maiden Run of "Pennsylvania Special"]

[Maiden Run of "Pennsylvania Special"]

Date: June 1902
Creator: unknown
Description: Heading out of the old Exchange Place Station in Jersey City, a spindly Atlantic type 4-4-2 locomotive and four de luxe coaches begin the maiden run of the "Pennsylvania Special" in June of 1902. Twenty hours and 912 miles later she will enter Chicago having given birth to a new era in passenger travel. On that same day in June the New York Central Railroad's "Twentieth Century Limited" also went into service. By 1929 all of the Pennsy's Atlantics had given way to the famed K4s Pacifics on first-class passenger runs.
