What is Salem county transit and why is it gettin anothier 1 million for trackwork? Is it a new name for SRNJ, Hasent SNJR been given enough money in the past for repairs? Do they use thet bridge yet with STATE money that could have gone to better things?

Salem County owns the railroad. SRNJ was appointed to operate it. A couple years ago the operation was conveyed to US Rail. They lost most of the customers and pretty much stopped operating. SRNJ is once again operating the railroad and bringing back lost customers. The grant money does not go to SRNJ.

NS 39G had six locos Thursday. Dash-9W's second and third. Then three Pavonia engines presumably going out for their 92-day: GP38-2's ex SOU 5242 and ex-PC 5286 and 5287.
CSAO WPCA20, which had used 5286 and 5287 recently, had 5277and 5311, also former Penn Central engines.

Ten miles north, SMS Rail Services' Baldwin DS44-1000 PRR 1069 crossed Pedricktown Road on its way to pick up the cars set off earlier by Conrail WPCA11.

Thursday afternoon Conrail's YPCA05 crew brought one spacer car and eighty empty tank cars from Sunoco in Westville to Pavonia using the power that brought in the crude as NS 64D.

Empty crude oil train NS 65D left Camden Friday afternoon with the three BNSF engines leading.
Looks like 5610 had a GE fire.

Pavonia coupled all their locomotives together and moved them to high ground in the yard to sit out hurricane Sandy.

corrected link
WPCA20 came through CP HATCH and met SP18 at Cove Road.
Third engine was SW1001 1128, which the dispatcher said would be dropped off at Fairhill Yard (west of Frankford Yard in Philly).
