4216 should be working the shuttles again today

Probably being 2312 had 4513s set.

During last years blizzard/snowstorm service 2303 used a solid Comet V set. Was that the occasion today?

4301 going to Bay Head now for fuel. I believe it’s all ALPs working the line at the moment.

I found that yesterday, 1/16/18, the mainline trains were mostly ALP-46s equipped with the ol' steel bells. It was amazing to see them, brought me back to 2010 again. I'll have a video up soon with that a 2 of the locals from today in the snow.

Reb Bank is a wonderful place to be today, wrong railing from Middletown to Hadley on the Westbounds guarantees a meet off every local. Just got one with 4652 and 4664.

Question - I've been in Point Pleasant lately (for various reasons) and usually try to catch whatever train is crossing the bridge while I'm there. I've yet to go to Bay Head Junction (amazingly). Is it worth taking photos down there or is it really better action in Red Bank with the possibility of the local freight action? What time is that usually running during the day, btw?

Theeebisba thread for the WPSA-31, it normally runs on Thursday, passing through Red Bank during the summer around 4:30 and in the winter around 2:30. If you google CR on the Southern Secondary you will get a forum from this site in it.

As for NJT, most locals meet here on the hour, and Vets units are also common.

4213 was roaming around on the shuttles yesterday... It may still be around today. It came in trailing on MM-08 on Wednesday night; ironically it was trailing right behind 4205

What's it running today? I don't want to head down to Long Branch to find 4515 there again.
