There is an error in the Wiki entry. In the Red Bank alignment description the station listed as Howell Route 23 should be Route 33/34.

They have been working around on the signals in Red Bank recently, and NJT pickups have been running along the Southern Secondary recently as well. Any coincidence?

Probably not. They are working on adding PTC to the coast line and since NJ transit is responsible for signaling to an extent on the southern, then they will be around. They also are planning to do 562 on the coast line.

Enlighten the signally illeterate -- what is the significance/are the benefits (if any) of (NORAC, I assume) 562?

They dont need to maintain automatic signals, and flexable signal braking distances/speeds can be done with advanced hardware.

Yes NORAC rule 562. All cab signals, no waysides except home signals at interlockings, and the ability to display the "C" light, Rule 280A - Clear to Next Interlocking for Trains with their cabs cut out. No wayside automatic signals to maintain, and typically the blocks get smaller to allow higher-density signalling (more trains, in the same amount of track)

Ah wow! Thanks for the info. So if I'm understanding correctly, this'll be something akin to what MNR runs?

Does any other NJT line have this feature?

The NEC line between County and Ham, and Rea and "A" interlockings. Don't know of any NJT owned lines that are already 562'ed.

Hello, the entire Passcack valley line. A bunch of the M&E has been done now to but not all of it. The Southern Tier is being cut over.
