Anyone know what the plan is for a return run? There’s a major snowstorm coming on Friday night and 6160 has no snowplows.

I do know that PR-19 won’t be bringing it back, but having SA-31 pick it up tomorrow just seems counterproductive.

No SA38 tonight….

Eot data shows northbound SA-31 approaching Eatontown at 6:15 in the pm. Oh well, no blizzard shots this time around... :(

Returning on the Amboy Secondary with barely an inch on the ground. Good timing this trip...

5:38 pm SA31 has some sort of mechanical issue and has stopped in between Pine Brook Rd and Wayside Rd…

Have we found out who the mystery tank car is for? BelRay is long gone but the tank keeps coming almost every week now. I don't think RR customers are public record AFAIK so this will be tough

@Matt Johnson Nice shot.

@JohnFromJersey I believe it’s someone in the Howell area. I’ve heard there’s another Bel Ray nearby…

Nice catch, Matt.

Ok, Johnny, here's a hint.....the contents of this car can be used for things other than what Bel-Ray 'could have' used it for....
(Can't give it away people, you gotta' think hard for this one)

It’s ethanol, aside from blending it in with gasoline or using it as a solvent I’m not sure what else it’s used for. The question is where’s it being transloaded to?

Central Monmouth County, but not 07731.

Approaching Farmingdale just before 2AM. They seemed to have drilled Woodhaven quite fast if they are returning this soon, given the current weather conditions

Passing Main St at 2:09 AM. Pretty late return run, and pretty loud at this hour. Would've gone out to see it if not for being 2 AM, and extremely dark and windy.

Late return runs like this are more common in the summer/warmer months from my experience
