ME-2 on the Delco Industrial with CSX 4421, 6 cars for Solterra Recycling, 13 cars for Cal Chlor, and one car for what I think is Pioneer Commodities. They also have the caboose.

Raritan Central ran their Holiday Express today. It was RC 1074 with a rebuilt bay window caboose.

They just run around Raritan Center with it??

No. They just park it in one spot and let people come say hi to Santa. Honestly though, it was really nice! I love these little trains that are run for the enjoyment of families.

CR ME-02 4421 facing east with 24 in tow, no caboose coming out at Lincoln 11:25am

ME-2 will be leaving the Delco IT with CSX 4421, 3 outbound loaded trash cars from Solterra, and the caboose…

I've never been to Metuchen Yard. How do I find it and is it safe to be there or nearby? Might bring grandkids.
  by Bracdude181
 
It’s safe to go there but hard to catch a train.

Raritan Central is running today though and they are only 5 minutes from Metuchen.

One crew has RC 5145 and RC 5107.

Other crew has RC 5 and RC 2244.

Will be leaving the Edison yard soon but I have zero clue what they are doing.
  by Bracdude181
 
5107 and 5145 are working Home Depot

Other crew took 5 or so boxcars and went west.

I know Metuchen yard is between 287 and Route 1.

But what are the 3 or 4 extra tracks on the eastbound side of NEC called, starting around the 287 overpass, just timetable west of the wye for the Metuchen branch, and then running about a 1/2mile or so west? You rarely see cars there anymore.

Not sure if those tracks are still used.

ME-2 is attempting to work Super Stud Building Products but is having difficulty due to a mechanical issue with CSX 6159. Engineer is reporting “severe vibration”

RC-2 is being held up in Metuchen yard. They have RC 5 and 2244.
