Great, thanks.

Thanks to all with the responses on the CSX/Harrison traffic. I had been curious how the county line customers were managing who had gotten their cars through Harrison with the M&E, especially Kuiken Bros. in Succasunna who I believe got most if not all their traffic from CSX.

Anything new going on up there? Any new customers? How is the M&E surviving?

Looks like DRRV #732 is being renumbered to #1823.

Not sure if this deserves its own thread, so I'll put it here:

My town's Facebook page recently shared a press release for hearings on relocating the connection between the D&R and the M&E. With all customers over on Green Pond Road, they'd like to abandon the stretch through Wharton and Dover and connect to the M&E east of Dover.

Press release: https://morriscountynj.gov/2018/09/oct- ... -proposal/

Project page (sparse info): http://doverrailstudy.org/

There does seem to be an abandoned right of way in the area but I'm not sure if it's still available (per sat photos)

Then what about the shipper C&M Metals? Are they giving up on new business?

For that matter, why don't the just rip up the whole line and build a transload facility just east of Dover yard? With the cost savings they could subsidize drayage and transload costs and come out ahead.

Railroads need railroaders who believe in their business.

The M&E still owns and operates their section of track from Whippany to Roesland. They no longer hold the contract to operate the Morris County-owned track (Dover & Rockaway, Chester Branch, High Bridge Line). Check in M&E's forum for current operations details.
