Preserving the memory and heritage of the

Pennsylvania Reading Seashore Lines

The Biggest Little Railroad in South Jersey


Discussions of the PRSL Prototype and in Model form are welcomed!



The Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines (PRSL) was a joint venture of the Pennsylvania Railroad and Reading Railroad in South Jersey. Both railroads had built rail networks in the region, but the Great Depression cut into profits. The ICC forced both railroads into a merger. The two companies joined their southern New Jersey lines on June 25, 1933 into one company, which the PRR had a 2/3 ownership in.
