3010 was swapped out in Washington yesterday for SD40-2 3366.... It is now the H-02 power working the Totowa Spur.

Yes...3010 was shopped due to cab signal issues. 3366 will be on the job until a 4-axle road switcher becomes available.

NS 3010's horn was swapped with a very nice sounding P5 for anybody interested.

H02 headed to BT tomorrow to interchange Toys for Tots train consist with the NYSW.

Saturday's trip will be on the NYSW and Sundays along the MNJ. Please come out this weekend to support a great cause by donating new unwrapped toys to be given to families who are less fortunate. Every donation counts! :)

I guess that means down to west end around the wye and up th BC to BT. It should only take forever, dodging passenger traffic... I guess West End is the only connection between the "electric side" and the "diesel side" anymore.

I would call it the DLW side and the Erie side, but someone would busily point out that the Mail Line from Sec Jct to South Patterson is old DLW, and Montclair to Mountain View is old Erie. And Montclair to Hackettstown is diesel for that matter. Call it what u want.

West end is indeed the only connection. Too bad the Greenwood Lake Branch north of Mountain View is now fully vegetated, otherwise the equipment could go up that way to Pompton Junction. The tracks end in Pompton Plains about 2 miles south of PJ.

And I do agree with you on the Erie and DLW sides... ;)

So if they're going from Dover to West End, is that via Morristown or Montclair?
Make a little noise at the flag location.

They took the Montclair Line east and the Morristown Line west. Track 1 was OOS between Cedar and Glen so that may be why the didn't take the MC Line back.

Is the H-02 still working five days a week? With the few remaining customers, a couple of days a week would seem to suffice.

NS 5637 died in Totowa last night, and therefor NJT 4300 was called in to rescue it on the Totowa Industrial Track. Quite the site...

Rumor has it the H-02 ran out of fuel!

Just saw the H-65 going through P'Burg and it had two NJT cars on the tail end. I think they were control cars. They should be on the next H-02. They were NJTR 1372 and 1373.
