What are the prospects for riding a train all the way to Lambertville this coming season? Or perhaps on a track car if it isn't realy for train service?
Slim to none! The line to Lambertville has not been completely cleared of brush and/or rehabbed. I believe Sandy Ridge Mt Airy Rd is as far as the rehabilitation has gotten.
When I rode the train back in October, I was told that 2021 is the target year for service resumption into Lambertville.

Correct, though meeting that 2021-2022 soft target is largely dependent upon receipt of donations to acquire necessary ties and other materials. https://fundrazr.com/c15nIe?ref=ab_b5RZ ... 7PTecSKgSY

I wouldn't hold your breath about being able to ride the BR&W RR to Lambertville this year.

I would love to volunteer my time and equipment clearing brush when the time comes. How do I present myself to the people that organize this?
