GP-40 #4202 working down here now. Saw it Monday night, Nov 6, working the shuttle.

4202 on tonight’s 2313. Also, the Aqua Train went to Bay Head last night with 4109; it will probably spray the upper NJCL tonight.

Aqua Train arrived in Bay Head soon after the PTC train left. 4109 will lead the Aqua Train east; they will follow 4398

Is the Aqua Train a steam-spitting machine followed by two tank cars and 4102 pushing LHF? Saw that last night westbound through Bradley Beach about 10:45 pm.

Yes, that is the Aqua Train, though I do have one correction: the unit pushing is 4109; the 4102 is currently on the Hoboken Division.

Comet V 6000 is currently paired with 4515 as I saw them on 2303 Wed.

Saw Geep 40 #4302 running light LHF eastbound through Bradley Beach at 2 am this morning. Unique horn.

There are a few 6500 series coaches running on the line today for the first time in a while. These will probably only show on NYP-LB services so it's a good opportunity to see them.

There is an Arrow III set working 3507+3508 today. Very rare on the Coast Line nowadays.

That sure is, too bad I wasn't able to catch it. Probably not going out for any revenue trains unless a GP40 comes down or something being I'm headed to Secaucus Junction this weekend to hopefully catch some Ex-CNJ GP40PH-2s before they are gone from the revenue roster forever.

Saw the MM-08 last night in Bradley Beach. They had 4508, 4031, 5024, ML coach, and 4302. Pretty sure the 4031 replaced 4005, which broke down yesterday morning.

Also if anybody cares, the 4515 has an unrestricted K5LA, which is fitting considering that it is still paired with 6000.
