Sounds like after Newark....its gonna be down to NK,reverse, then thru Oak Island and up the Nat Docks/bergen tunnel/northern/river line.
Sounds like an electric and DM on the head end and a P42 on the rear, out of NYP. Just speculating...

That would be quite the "rare mileage" trip. I suppose it wouldn't be wise to even tempt myself by seeing if there are still tickets available...

I took the Saturday trip. It was operated with two P42s, one at each end, and an ACS-64 between one of them and the 9800, which was on one end of the consist.

Here's the route, for anyone who's curious. Note that it leaves the tracks a number of times -- we did not.
