(Living a few blocks from NJ Transit's Atlantic City Line, it's pretty cool to get out and railfan some of the other rail lines on their system. Although it seems we have all of the Geeps down here, and I'm not complaining about that!)

Amazing shots, but unfortunately that last picture depicts that 4216 was removed from the set with 6000, bummer.

#4302 was photographed yesterday in the yard at Long Branch from the Bath Ave grade crossing:

And most definitely Yes! The bridge over the Navesink River is a fantastic spot for picture taking!
Thank you everyone for the kind words

Yep I just happen to be in Long Branch and see it sitting there.

The Navesink is by far my favorite place on the NJCL to photograph trains. I live really close to it, not so hard to access.

Great Point Pleasant shot. 6000 certainly needs a bath.
Tonight's forecast - dark. Followed by scattered light in the morning.

Pretty sure that’s the only cab car with flashing ditch lights on NJT. Nice catch!

Unfortunately I had no idea it was leading. I was surprised seeing it

YL-52 should be near Bay Head now with 4302 lite. They should be getting fuel then returning to Long Branch lite.
