It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.

Lol... the dispatcher and Sa31 are having miscommunications.

Chris if you want to know what I'm talking about, that it stops after Maxwell Rd, go to the end of the video, and I put a clip of it stopped.

Radio was scratchy, but I though I heard South Jersey warn SA-31 about a brush fire near the tracks... couldn't make out the milepost though. There was nothing at MP 43 in Tinton Falls....

Yeah, Chris, I was able to make something out about that too. For some reason today, my scanner income was all scratchy. I could hardly hear anything.
Btw, thanks for the heads-up today!

There may or may not be a daylight run up the Southern tomorrow... Apparently there is no SA-38 crew tonight

Thanks for the video, Erik, and thanks for the heads-up for tomorrow, Donny. The fire turned out to be behind the train at or about MP43; I don't know what the situation was, but it happened just after the train passed by Pine Brook Rd or thereabouts. While driving to Farmingdale, I saw 2 Tinton Falls Fire vehicles racing towards the area, so something was definitely up.

Anywho, this was a special run for me, as a certain young man who I met while chasing a Santa Train 5 or 6 years ago is now in his early 20's and has hired on to Conrail as a conductor. I'm not sure if this was his first trip down the Southern, but it was very cool to see Chris realize his goals in person. Keep up the good work, my friend....
