Remarks & Notes 
The evening rush hour is in full swing while the crew of Conrail ME-2 waits in the clear on the Millstone Industrial Track just west of Jersey Avenue. Freshly repainted caboose CR 22137 made its debut out on the Northeast Corridor on this day after being repainted in Metuchen Yard. This caboose had been a tagged, rusting eyesore for a decade or more. For years there was talk of restoring it to some form of Conrail blue paint. What was accomplished has exceeded my expectations! 22137 is assigned to Conrail's Metuchen Yard and is a regular feature on ME-2 as it serves customers along the Northeast Corridor between Metuchen and North Brunswick. It's worth noting that 22137 is an actual caboose and not a "shove platform". It is appreciated by the crew for the frequent reverse moves that this job makes. It still wears the Conrail classification N-20 and was built for the Reading Company in 1970 by International Car Corporation in Kenton, OH.
