Still no firm date for when service will be restarted? And is there an issue now with the Delair Bridge?

No return of service date has been issued as of yet.

No issues with the Delair Bridge either, to my knowledge. CSAO utilizes the bridge everyday.

Thanks. Buzz about speed restriction is seemingly without a basis in fact.

NJ Transit is Desperately throwing spaghetti at the wall at this point. The sooner they realize we aren’t stupid the better. It is making their whole transparency campaign look like a tremendous joke. It will backfire terribly.

I sure hope your right but the cynical side of me says it never will.. To them the commuters are stupid little serfs to their cabal. They can tell the masses that service will comeback and say it isn't a lie, but politicians lie like that all the time, so why is this situation any different??? Buses are being run and people are grinning and bearing it.. The longer its shutdown then less and less people will return to the rails.

As much as NJT might want to rid themselves of the AC line, I don't see that happening. Two words: Norcross, Sweeney.

NJT rescued the line form Amtrak as a gift to South Jersey in exchange for things North Jersey wanted. Too much power between these two for anything to happen to the AC line.

guys until the north lines get back to normal schedules neither will AC. did you miss the part about them running cabs in front of locos now? where are they going to find this magical equipment to run on the AC line?

It does not look good for service restoration: https://njbiz.com/murphy-no-timeline-ac-line-restoration/
The Federal Railroad Administration, which oversees compliance with PTC requirements, still has to inspect and test all the PTC-equipped vehicles before they can return to routine service, according to Nancy Snyder, a spokesperson for NJ Transit....
“Under the law, NJ Transit must operate PTC-equipped locomotives or cab control cars on the front and rear of all trains. This has had an impact on our flexibility to substitute equipment when an unplanned mechanical issue occurs,” Snyder said in a statement to NJBIZ.

So until the shutdown is over there will be no service as the equipment is not available for use. Once the shutdown ends, then add one month before NJT can actually restore the service.

No Ac rail line service until April at the earliest and maybe as late as June:

I will believe this line and the Princeton Shuttle are coming back when it's announced. I expect they will, but I'm shocked that they still can't reliably run the weekend schedule.

You're starting to look silly. Never seen someone cite "Creeping unspecified delay with no official end in sight" as evidence that something is certain to return before...

you genuinely think they are going to never return this line to service due to their own ill will, as opposed to say not having equipment available because there's no one to inspect it? really?
