Great videos as always. Nice rare daytime return. Would you guys please caption the locations, so those not familiar with the area can find these spots? Or in the comments section below the video?
Every 20 minute job is just one broken bolt away from being a three day ordeal.

Can you give a rundown of the obstructions?


Plate F is 17' height. The only Height clearances in question are:
Tinton Ave.
GS Parkway (4)
US Navy rail
US Navy Esperance Rd.
NJ 33/34
NJ 70
Any possibly low hanging utility wires

The only other consideration is turn radius. There are to large curves, Eatontown and South Lakewood. Some of the stub sidings may also have tight radius turns.

Perhaps the contractor is being hired for track geometry as well as Plate F clearances? Why now?


Tinton Ave is the lowest bridge, but any 17'0 car would be to tall for NJCL, but not for Amtrak and a rebuilt Freehold line.
My guess is either Woodhaven or Earle wants Plate F cars.

It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.

There may be a possibility of a run today, due to Thursday is Thanksgiving. I heard no horns so far and nothing on my scanner; so they could be doing a late run, or they snuck down before 3:00

Thanks, will listen for them. The run has been on Wednesday for the past couple of years, so we'll see what happens this year.....

I heard nothing overnight... it is an 80% chance they will run today...
I don't know if the SA31 will run in freehold today, it could just be the Southern Secondary

Per an extremely reliable source, the train will be on the Southern on Friday. They are going on the Heightstown Industrial and Freehold Industrial today

Approaching Maxwell Rd in Eatontown at 4:45 in the pm with 9 Woodhavens; first time down the Southern, I believe, for CSX 6159.

I Don't know, But right now I hear a K5LA and it sounds like CSX 6159... have no idea if they could get back this early. But I think I hear the SA38 at 11:37pm
