The Bullet (CNJ)

The Bullet ran from Jersey City to Wilkes-Barre, PA. It was designed compete with the Lehigh Valley's Black Diamond. Since the Black Diamond ran into Penn Station in New York City, and the Bullet ran via a ferry connection at Jersey City, the outcome was almost preordained.

The Bullet started its service on November 7th, 1929. It's short life ended on July 12, 1931.

The consist included Pacific engines and heavy weight coaches. With the exception of the paint scheme, these trains would have appeared much like the Blue Comet.

There are pictures in promotional material, but since the engine is numbered 833 and this train started after the Blue Comet, I think that they included Blue Comet pictures in the material.
