"Garden State Secondary formerly Chemical Coast Line "COAS" - Oak Island Yard to North Jersey Coast Line at Perth Amboy"
I just checked the wiki list of Conrail components, and read the above. CR has changed a smelly old chemical coast into a fragrant garden, with a stroke of a pen. It's a marketing miracle.
Garbage State Secondary is my choice; (meant as humor. I've been employed by railroads in New Jersey since 1955.)
