752 and six cars. 5 for Woodhaven and a tank.

Tanker, what does the Facebook post say? I don’t have an account so I can’t access it.

Glad to hear the Santa train is returning.

Earlier this morning a car took out the telephone pole that sends power into the Central Ave crossing.

New crossing poles and light went up in Lakehurst today. Not done yet but as of today both sets of light are next to each other. The one on the North west side with that sq frame is not done yet.

Square frame might be a for a cantilever. I forgot what the plan was for this road. This was supposed to be done earlier but then the pandemic happened.

Well, it's good news that they continue to maintain and even upgrade the tracks + crossings on the NJSL/Clayton section of track.

Hopefully, this is good news for the near future...

Looks likely Lakewood-Lakehurst will be worked on and maybe opened before the FIT. In the absence of customers down there, I would have expected FIT done first. Hmmmm - - -

I'm not sure how NJT would feel about very heavy and somewhat frequent sand trains coming on and off the coastline, in addition to the twice-a-week regular freights, unless they combined those. DRRR would service Woodhaven and whoever else first, and then go down to Lakehurst to drop the sand cars off???

But then you're talking about probably 50 car loads twice a week, DRRR would probably need another engine or two, especially if 2006 is having issues.
