SA31 should come down shortly, the switch is switched.
It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.

Currently waiting for SA38 to show up at Woodhaven. SA31 reached Lakewood around 8:15 PM tonight and running pretty fast today.

As of 9:38 PM, SA38 has finished drilling Woodhaven but appears to have tied down the train on the Woodhaven spur...

The SA-31 crew was supposed to drill Woodhaven as far as I know, so they were waiting for the 38 crew . . .

@CoastLineRailfan I meant to type 4421 lol. Turns out it was actually two SD45s that brought OI-16 to browns that day.

When they finished drilling Woodhaven, they turned out all the lights on the locomotive so I thought they had tied it down there. It turns out the 31 crew and the 38 crew were having a quick meeting in the parking lot next to the Woodhaven spur. They were there for about 15-20 minutes before leaving. The SA38 crew got into the locomotive once they finished, and they left shortly afterwards.

On Nov 21 last, ANRP2 posted that a contractor would be checking for "Plate F" clearance along the southern. Since then there has been no more and I have been rattling my pea sized brain to see what might fit or cause that requirement.
Interestingly enough, Oyster Creek nuclear plant is being de-commissioned. The CMSL freight tracks which join the southern sec at Lakehurst are only a short ride over Barnegat Drive or Lacey Rd thru mostly sparsely populated areas. They're gonna need to move that stuff somehow, and there's a lot of very large pieces, and GSP or rte 9 for any distance would not be a good answer. Thoughts?

Talking with some people about this they said lots of bigger parts came by Barge back when built. Would seem it would go out the same way? Lots of freight went down the Barnagate Branch which is long gone now. Food for thought...
