the customers on the pvl ? the line
that runs behind the lowes along route 17...
i barely ever see trains on there....
does that train come outta croxton as one whole train
or do they break those cars off a bergen/main train ?

When the 32a comes in the train is blocked already the H82 does what we call the croxton drill. Track 1 is suffern and campbell hall cars. Track 5 is BC line cars and Track 7 is PV line cars. Our engine is left near woodridge station. We go in the yard 2-3 times a week depending on how many cars come in. I am going into the yard tomorrow morning to drop off my empties and pick up whatever loads I got in there, its been quiet the past week or so I ain't complaining...lol

bano, thanks for all this info. Looking at google earth. Trying to see if i can find the customers in south hackensack. Found 1 past ford.

As for the scanner, i have a radio shack brand i got for my bday last year and just got a roof mount antenna. Works pretty good. But im planning on picking up a window mount.

I haven't paid attention to this area in a while, so help me catch up please.

H-07 started as a Corning, NY drill but is now a job based in NJ

H-82 is a local based at Wood Ridge (but not listed on NS)
H-80 & H-81 are Croxton locals.

32A is also not listed on the freight list I have, which is not current.

On Friday, while travelling south on the NY Thruway, I saw a train headed north (railroad east) at about 3:55 p.m. through Arden, NY. While I didn't see the numbers from my passenger seat, the engine types were NS D9-40CW, BNSF D9-44CW & NS D9-40CW. Was this the HO7?
