In the mid-1980's and early 1990's I lived in Somerset Cty, NJ and frequently drove for business south to the Philadelphia area. I tended to take US 130 from South (North?) Brunswick down to I-295. There was a stretch of rt 130 (I think it was in/around Hightstown) that paralleled a one-track rail line. I recall seeing very occasional Conrail traffic, but the line seemed to be rarely used. Was this part of the original Camden & Amboy route?
