The yard had its “soft opening” with full service by Summer. The eastbound service is scheduled to run 6 days per week according to the schedule.
I think it may be possible that NJ Transit might not be the perfect, infallible organization that most people assume it is.

Edit: downloaded the public NS IM schedules, and there are indeed references to trains 242/243 going to/from "null, NJ." I take it this is Greenville, but it has yet to be programmed into the NS system. Trains seem to run M/W/F in both directions.


242 will run Su/Tu/Th from HBG, carry NYCT and GCT.
243 will run M/W/F departing Erail for HBG


So these trains will run HBG-Erail and a CR local will break up for distribution to Staten Island and G'ville?

Yes YPPN08 already takes the NS and CSX IM cars for Staten Island over, nothing changes here. For now at least, Conrail will take the NS and CSX IM cars over to Greenville.
