I was wondering the same thing. Could I be the new designator for Intermodal? Just a guess.
So I guess the line is open for business again. I heard trains going through Teaneck already last night, and more today.
My UPS package that had been delayed on its rail journey from Earth City MO through St. Louis, and I assume Selkirk NY to Secaucus NJ, had already arrived in Secaucus by 6AM this morning. So, one of those trains I heard in Teaneck during the night was the Intermodal that carries UPS trailers.
i have seen those trains consisting of UPS TOFC's, and stacks, but I haven't seen any dedicated UPS trains on the Riverline for a long time - maybe not since Conrail.
Just now, as I am writing this, I am listening to the NI dispatcher talking to someone up in Haverstraw about a fire that apparently fouled the line somewhere between CP33 and CP38 for a while this afternoon / evening. Probably brush fires. Red or yellow flag warning was up today due to gusty winds and low humidity.
