I meant to post this a few days ago when I saw it, but on the Kuiken Brothers siding in Emerson, (the part of the siding that parallels the main) there were 2 flat cars that appeared to have concrete slabs on them. I assume for a crossing somewhere. There could've been more than two cars there, but I only caught a quick glance as I was passing by.

Pearl River station doesn't smell so good. "NJ Transit apologizes for any inconvenience," as our announcements always s say. From LOHUD.COM: http://www.lohud.com/story/news/transit ... /90930390/

Probably related to the reconstruction of the intersection/crossing at Kinderkamack Rd. Emerson has long wanted to reconfigure that downtown area for better traffic flow. They've finally begun.
rails > roads

On second thought, let's not go to the NJ Transit Rail forum, 'tis a silly place.

I happened to see an interesting trainset today, around 11am headed thru Westwood, and headed towards Spring Valley. PL42 #4013 leading, followed by 5 comet V's and then Geep #4105. Could not see if the geep had it's marker lights on and was on-line or if it was dead in tow. I'm assuming there was a bad trainset or loco in Spring Valley that needed towing back to Hoboken? (hence the need for the #4105) If not, no idea why there was a loco on both ends. Unless the geep was acting as a cab car. And I'm pretty sure #4105 is a work loco only now. Or it was last I knew.

Was there a particular reason why? or was it an equipment swap...

I have no idea. I asked the conductor if it was a normal thing, and he said it was not at all normal and he asked the dispatcher if his crew had the right equipment. Figuring it was just an equipment swap, possibly with 1277 or 1281 (which also use multilevel equipment).

I happened to catch NS switching Kuiken Bros. lumber in Emerson today, driving past in my work travels. Don’t know if it was a delivery or just picking up an empty car. I saw 2 engines with an empty lumber spine car sandwiched in between. They were sitting on the siding parallel to the main, probably waiting for clearance to leave.

Interesting photo I found on the web from many years ago from the Westwood station. Notice 3 tracks... just an FYI this is obviously not my photo.

NS in Emerson

I caught NS H81 this afternoon after school, with GP38's 5613 and 5614, and a Southern Pacific Boxcar.

Nice catch! A couple of weeks back there were 2 empty lumber spines there. It’s nice to see Kuiken bros. get regular service!
