Thanks for the info Donny. Keep us informed today.

Chris, I caught it at Maxwell and Wayside, but at Wayside, I could see down near Pine Brook Rd, and the train was taking an awful lot of time to get to Wayside. Don’t know if it caused it to slow down. And also the conductor was super nice.
It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.

Sounds like the 31 crew will take the train back today. Should be an afternoon run

If the crew left Browns at 12:30, then you figure 50-60 minutes to Lakewood in this traffic, and the train is ready to go right now per a friend. Inspection/brake test, leave Lakewood at 2:00ish, drill Brick Recycling/BelRay at 3:00ish, so Red Bank at 4:45ish, if my theory is correct. I know there's a cutoff time (5:00pm?) for them coming west due to rush hour trains, but I'm not sure about an eastbound move.

Just a theory, and it is the railroad we're dealing with here, so.........

Ok, so my theory was not quite correct; per a report from the field, train is on the move, but running late, not yet to Farmingdale at 4:00 in the pm.

Wish I could’ve gone for the 066, however a buddy told me it would pass one of those Railstream things so I resorted to that instead. If it’s still in over the weekend I’ll probably search for it.

Well... it’s running up to Campbell Hall via NJT on Sunday... You can PM me if you want so we don’t go off topic
