Fresh communications cable markout on Fairfield road, on top of the blacktop strip that covered the trackbed at the crossing. It went on this morning, wasn't there yesterday afternoon. Sign of progress ?

Thanks for the heads up. Missed the move as I was working but did see the engine back at the Jamesburg Wye in front of the caboose on way home (pick below). This means they must have run back onto the Amboy Secondary for brief moment to come back down other leg of the Wye and head to Freehold. I also saw the police and RR employees going over procedures and protocols by the dirt road crossing across from Sherman St. Can't wait to see them officially start hauling freight!

Sadly there was many people who knew about the move and did not report it, at least to my knowledge.

2005 wasn’t ferried to Red Bank today, I shall do my absolute best to report that when it happens.

Also, C&D emergency contact info has not been added to the TRIT or the Southern past Cross Street.

Those spots haven't seen a train in quite some time, so the chance of an emergency that requires emergency contact is quite low. Not good practice, but C&D isn't operating down there yet + has bigger concerns than some signs on OOS tracks right now

It will get there. Remember that some of us work for Conrail as well. We will get our power. The engine move was more of a show and tell rather than a "qualifying" run. These are industrial tracks so technically we operate at restricted speed and no need for qualifications.

From what I’ve been hearing they’ll bring 2005 and Woodhavens loads, but will not deliver them until the qualification run is completed.

2005 has not been ferried to Red Bank yet as far as I know. I’m listening in on Coast Line Dispatch to see if they bring it down today.

I politely ask those who are keeping an eye out along the FIT and the SOUS to report any movements if they can. Doing so is a big help to those who chase these trains and is greatly appreciated. As it stands I am still not aware of what their schedule will be.
