NJT's Atlantic City Line

Post by Schaffner » Sat May 09, 2009 9:40 pm

Is the NJT Philly-Atlantic City line an ex-PRSL route? If so, is it the old Pennsy route that used to be electrified with a third rail?

Last question is, is there freight operations on this line? If so, who is the freight railroad?

Yes, it is the ex-PRSL "Main Line" to Atlantic City. It was originally the PRR's route to Atlantic City at one time, though not the one that was electrified (that was the route from Camden through Woodbury, to Newfield, and on to Atlantic City via Pleasantville).

Freight operations are handled by the SRNJ, and are entirely transfer operations between Winslow and GRIFF interlocking near Pleasantville. There are no current freight customers on the AC Line itself, with the exception of PATCO which OCCASIONALLY receives cars, though they're north of Winslow.

Does anyone know what the sign says the height clearance is for the Atlantic City Line bridge over Spring Road next to the CNJ Tracks? I am working on a modeling project and I want it to be as right as I can make it. I have scanned through the pics on the internet and I never see the road sign with the height clearance on it. Thanks!
