The completed Comet toured the New Haven system starting May 1st 1935. It had a light gray roof, the sides were machine "whorled" aluminum coated with clear varnish and highlighted with a broad blue stripe. It entered service as Train #555 on July 21 1935 in an attempt to bring riders back to the railroad. Running between the capitol cities of Massachusetts and Rhode Island it was advertised as 44 miles in 44 minutes, $1.75 round trip!

The Comet operated on the same route from its delivery until the middle 1950's when it was retired and scrapped.
