The Pennsylvania Northeast Regional Railroad Authority (PNRRA) this week was awarded a $400,000 state grant for engineering services needed to continue track and structure construction for a passenger-rail restoration project.

[…]

The $400,000 is in addition to $300,000 in federal funding the PNRRA received from the Appalachian Regional Commission. That grant is being used to fund engineering costs as part of the next phase of construction.

Thanks for sharing the update.

More "engineering services".... I guess it's better than nothing, and at least it hasn't been totally forgotten about.

New Jersey Transit is now in the construction phase of the Lackawanna Cut-Off project between Port Morris and Andover, New Jersey.

They've been working on that for years. First the problem was that the ROW had become a "waterway" and required wetlands reparation (digging a swamp somewhere else). Then they discovered that a tunnel was a breeding area for bats. From my own inspection, the proposed station is out in the middle of the woods!
