A drunk in the guage put 3251 in emergency at Shrewsbury Ave crossing in Red Bank; 31 may be delayed a few minutes. The a**hole moved out of the way just before he was hit....

Funny you say that, I watched someone almost get hit last Friday by 3266 at the Monmouth Street crossing, both trains were departing at the same time, the ALP-46A on the southbound set pulled out, and he walked across, not knowing that 7040 was on the other side. The guy made it, by like an inch or two. People need to learn that the gates are down for a reason. 3251 was already running a like 5 minutes late, go figure.

Correct, CSX 4412 leading 4452 + 16, Maxwell Rd at 4:55 in the pm. ABOX up front, not sure if it's a brick or not, the rest for Woodhaven.

Nothing on the coast line will ever change this has been going on for ages. You should see all the devices they have had to put in places like middletown, aberdeen, bradley beach to try and stop people from squeezing thru and they still do.
No good deed goes unpunished.

This coming Thursday’s run could be rather interesting... CSX 4421 is in the yard, with that unit being equipped with a RS5T
