Was it mostly passenger traffic to the shore fronts or were there was a large amount freight that terminated at the lines?At one time, there was significant freight traffic. As mentioned above, the points that bordered the Delaware River as well as locations in the Millville area (for sand) generated the most traffic. The largest customer in the shore area was Northwest Magnesite at Cape May Point until 1962 when the power plant opened at Beesley's Point outside of Ocean City. That power plant accepted both coal and fuel oil, resulting in a significant increase in traffic on the Clementon Branch as well as the Cape May Branch between Winslow and Tuckahoe, and then the Ocean City Branch and Beesley's Pt. Industrial to the plant.
