Here's one worth researching:

Some years ago I found some information concerning probably the first railroad in Ocean County (even before, as Ocean County was founded in 1850). It seems a Mr. Terry (possibly Joseph) operated a sand quarry near Toms River and built a small railroad to haul the sand. He purchased a small steam locomotive but it turns out that the machine was prone to breakdowns and derailments and the experiment was given up.

Not sure where I found the article. I'll dig up what I can find and post it.

Anyone else familiar with this?

So many other tidbits too: There was a narrow gauge railroad on the beach at Spring Lake, near Wreck Pond. Not an amusement ride, but an industrial operation. Sand, most likely.
Tonight's forecast - dark. Followed by scattered light in the morning.

It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.

Lol... the dispatcher and Sa31 are having miscommunications.

Chris if you want to know what I'm talking about, that it stops after Maxwell Rd, go to the end of the video, and I put a clip of it stopped.
