Re: NJT Comet IV Cars

I thought it was an Amtrak restriction which prevented them from leading trains or is this not true?

Re: US Navy Earle Railroad

I've heard that the second track is owned by the Army which would possibly be why they're not maintaining it like they do with the other track.

Re: US Navy Earle Railroad

They just finished redoing the Kings Hwy crossing and they took out the second track at the crossing like they've done with all the new crossing projects. They ran a test train today with an SW1200, a VO, and about 15 cars...

The last one had SEPTA cab 2408 leading with the MARC coaches all reversed (MARC logo towards the cab car end of the train instead of the usual locomotive end...

Re: NJCL Matawan spur

It is now called the Natco Industrial Track which is a hold over from Conrail who operated freight service to IFF in Union Beach until October 1983. Every once in a while you'll see some MOW equipment stored there and I believe a couple winters ago NJ Transit stored a few trainsets there when there ...

Seashore Branch Freight Traffic 1966-1972

I was wondering if anybody had any information on this line's freight traffic after the end of passenger service, I can't seem to find much about this time period, only the mention of service being cut back to IFF in 1972. I'm curious as to what customers remained in this time period as well as traf...
