CSX 4432 and 4452 again with a decent sized train. Looks like it only has cars for Woodhaven.

Something doesn’t seem right. SA31 has not made it to Collingswood Auction yet as of 7:36 PM....

Edit: Train was last seen at Stavola in Tinton Falls around 6:10 PM. We aren’t picking up the EOTD signal the scanner here at Collingswood Auction....

Derailment at Stavola. Numerous cars on the ground. Crews are out here inspecting the wreck.

UPDATE

SA31 appears to be leaving Stavola now heading south with the cars that are still on the track. Either that or the recovery process has started.

Derailment at 6:00 in the pm. 3 centerbeams on the ground. Crew is taking the first 7 cars to Woodhaven tonight.

@RailsEast Can confirm. They left 15 minutes ago.

Pictures of the wreck will be uploaded once I can get Google Photos to work.

How does this happen on a 10 mph road? Simple, No track maintenance. All there more reason for a takeover by C&D.

I presume they left the units at Woodhaven last night?

Conrail North Jersey management is the reason why the Southern hasn’t gotten any major maintenance.

An old man that Bracdude181 will also explain has been lazy & doesn’t care about the railroads

The tracks in the Tinton Falls area are in very bad condition.

Hamilton Road crossing has no ballast and the tracks usually flood during a rain storm.

The line does need a major overhaul & its overdue.

Conrail South Jersey is actually doing better & in fact their engines are in better shape! They even have some High Hoods from Norfolk Southern!
