Nice! Looked at almost every picture!

Stoped after Maxwell road. Blew his horn randomly. Maybe it is a normal stopping position?

Should not be a normal spot to stop; also heard the crew was not yet to Farmingdale at 6:30. Not sure what's up with this trip....

Add another thing to this trip... they struck a car on Main Street in Lakewood a short time ago

Hence the very late return trip....crew is currently through Shrewsbury at 0630 hours, one load & 17 empties. They will surely park it at Patterson Ave if anyone wants a rare Friday morning shot....

Wait Donny... THEY HIT A CAR!? Did you catch it on footage? If so that, is something I would like to see...

Nothing on Lakewood scoop about car getting hit. They don't miss much about the train. They constantly place stuff all over the tracks delaying the train each week. They even pull cars right up to the tracks just north of RT88. I bet one was too close?

It is quite ironic that the folks in Lakewood seem to Hate the train. I guess they don't understand the train brings a lot of the building materials that supports the massive construction they love.

I don’t know how long it’s been like this, but I past Pine Brook Rd yesterday and the new crossings are uncovered and the old crossings were taken down...

Holland TrackStar track inspection truck westbound through Shrewsbury at 0830 this morning; should hit Farmingdale at 0930 or so. I will assume it will continue down to Lakewood if anyone is in the area & wants a photo of it. It's nothing fancy, but it is unusual to see a truck that big on the rails.....

I saw that truck last week prowling the NJCL Long Branch yard and then farther south. With all the lights on that thing, you can see it from space.

Here's one worth researching:

Some years ago I found some information concerning probably the first railroad in Ocean County (even before, as Ocean County was founded in 1850). It seems a Mr. Terry (possibly Joseph) operated a sand quarry near Toms River and built a small railroad to haul the sand. He purchased a small steam locomotive but it turns out that the machine was prone to breakdowns and derailments and the experiment was given up.

Not sure where I found the article. I'll dig up what I can find and post it.

Anyone else familiar with this?

So many other tidbits too: There was a narrow gauge railroad on the beach at Spring Lake, near Wreck Pond. Not an amusement ride, but an industrial operation. Sand, most likely.
