Atlantic City Railroad

The Atlantic City Railroad was a Philadelphia and Reading Railway subsidiary that was formed on April 1, 1889 to consolidate the company's southern New Jersey lines:

  • Camden, Gloucester & Mt. Ephraim Railway
  • Philadelphia and Atlantic City Railway

  • Williamstown and Delaware River Railroad

The Atlantic City Railroad later acquired, controlled or leased the following lines:

  • Cape May, Delaware Bay and Sewell's Point Railroad
  • Ocean City Railroad
  • Seacoast Railroad
  • Stone Harbor Railroad
  • Wildwood and Delaware Bay Short Line Railroad

On November 2, 1932, the Pennsylvania Railroad and Reading Company joined their southern New Jersey railroad lines into one company, The Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines which the Pennsylvania Railroad had a 2/3 ownership, and the Reading Company had a 1/3 ownership.

On July 15, 1933, the Atlantic City Railroad leased the West Jersey & Seashore Railroad and changed its name to Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines.
