Riding on the pokey locals, I'd love to have this on at least one car. @NJTRANSIT , let us have drinks again!

In the midst of reading about NJT's discontinued Atlantic City Express Service. It was a three station run NYC/Newark/AC, ran Friday-Sunday, and included food/drink kiosks and private lounges...on Bombardier Multilevels??

This service ran, not with a dual-mode loco, but with an electric ALP-44 at one end *and* a diesel P40DC at the other??

Coach started at $50, one-way. 1st class NJT *ho-ho-ho!* at $75?!? Today, taking NJT's NEC to SEPTA to AC is $36.75

What happened to this swanky NJT of 13 years ago? Where are my drink options crammed into a Multilevel?

First-class on the upper level (living metaphors, anyone?) enjoyed 2x1 seating. $75 bought you elbow room at least. I wonder how the leg room was vs today's seats

Holy shit. 2nd-class had tray tables! This is leaps and bounds above Multilevel's current configuration. How did we lose this?!

NJT's ACES service was a successor to Amtrak's from 1989-1995. They ran trains from Harrisburg, NYC, Richmond, Springfield, and DC to AC. Apparently the AC track line rehab was funded by spare NEC money, as a treat.

And of course, they had cafe cars.

@ThatIronTube @NJTRANSIT Except, you know, the part with the train going from New York to Atlantic City for some inexplicable reason. Just the part with having a bar on the train.

@NJTRANSIT @NJTRANSIT Incorporate the cafe into the NJT App! You already have our credit card info there. It would be amazing to be able to place an order from my seat and walk over to collect it. OR! To put the order for the train I'll be boarding! It would be great!
