As I'm filing items away, here's an article from the New York Sun from its July 1878 edition. This is an extremely well written piece of a race between a DL&W and PRR commuter train. I don't know where it would have taken place (near Newark?) but you NJ guys might have an idea. The reporter did such a good job you almost feel like you're on the train. You'll have to read it to see who won. Hang on to your seat and enjoy.
