Would love to see the HBLRT run to Edgewater and then through the Edgewater tunnels to access the Northern branch to arena fly.
It took me a while, but I think you mean….access the Northern branch to Tenafly. (out of control spell checker!!)
Would be cool. There is a natural gas line (or an electric line?) using the tunnel now. Will have to check my Mohowski book if it was once double track .
Picture of double track going into tunnel. https://weirdnj.com/stories/edgewater-f ... in-tunnel/
Also, Wikipedia says there is an electric power cable, and a pipeline belonging to the Hess company, presumably for oil or gasoline or similar now in the tunnel. It also says the tracks (most likely a single track by then) were still in service as late as 1992, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgewater_Branch
. The weirdnj site has a picture showing what may be the pipeline, appearing to be about 1-1/2 feet in diameter.
While the tunnel may have officially been in service as late as 1992, I wonder when the last train actually went thru.
