Last question is, is there freight operations on this line? If so, who is the freight railroad?
Yes, it is the ex-PRSL "Main Line" to Atlantic City. It was originally the PRR's route to Atlantic City at one time, though not the one that was electrified (that was the route from Camden through Woodbury, to Newfield, and on to Atlantic City via Pleasantville).
Freight operations are handled by the SRNJ, and are entirely transfer operations between Winslow and GRIFF interlocking near Pleasantville. There are no current freight customers on the AC Line itself, with the exception of PATCO which OCCASIONALLY
receives cars, though they're north of Winslow.
