On this date in 1935, the first train from the Newark Penn Station that we all know and love today, was a New York–Philadelphia express that departed at 10:17, 81 years ago today.

I first visited the station when I was 15 and met my brother on an Amtrak train returning from Jimmy Carter's Inaugural. I was amazed at the variety of trains using the station. I rode many trains from Newark over the years and it is still a wonderful art deco structure.
Here is a CNJ train at Newark on a cold winter day.
