good to see they finally put a new switch stand in on the industrial lead. That switch was hard to throw 5 years ago.

Looks like they're going to do some switch replacement in the yard, as there were three sitting beside track 1 today, ready to go in........
And a couple of pics from today:

The crane was back this morning - and some other MoW equipment - right outside the yard office. If I wasn't running late for work I'd have stopped.

I will get on the road a little earlier Friday morning and hopefully they'll still be working and I can get some shots.

The crane has been there since last reported, it just moves around to places where you cannot see it.

You will need 160.935 for the South Jersey dispatcher, 160.860 for operations in and out of Browns Yard, and 161.235 for NJ Transit's North Jersey Coast Line.

The Railroad Construction Co are doing some work over at the Bordentown Ave crossing.

Are they making the crossing into a wye?
