CA64 Westbound out of Camden at 11:43 AM. NS 5310 leading with NS 5307 trailing. 1 boxcar and 4 centerbeams.

Edit: It was actually CA51. My bad.

It's a shame I won't be back down at Rowan for a little bit, would like to see obscenely long trains!

CA11 doesn’t run past Rowan. On this particular day they outlawed at CP DEEP and CA51 picked them up. They normally come back through Woodbury around 12-1 PM ish.

Was really hoping to see CMSL freight but I was not lucky this time around.

There's a switch in Glassboro that is obviously abandoned. Anyone know what's up with that?

MI-61 passing through Glassboro at 5:35PM. I'll try to catch it tomorrow + get a video
  by Bracdude181
 
The switch is used once in a blue moon for parking of MOW equipment. Satellite view shows that the ROW continues directly on to Bridgeton. Ex PRSL like maybe?

Also what power do MI-61 have? That train usually swaps engines frequently I’ve noticed.

Lasted into the Conrail era. When the Central line was up graded it was cut back to Elmer and eventually cut back to where it is now for W & W. Was abandoned in the late 70s.

Caught MI-61 today in Glassboro - 5:35PM EST, on the dot, like yesterday. Was able to see it and not just hear it, but didn't get to the crossing in time to get a video. I'll try again Thursday...

As for engines, it was two CSX engines, could not get their numbers.

MI-61 returning through Glassboro. Can hear it but sadly not see it.

Usually MI-61 makes their return trip between 11PM and sometimes 3AM. I will try to catch them on their afternoon run tomorrow.

MI-61 passing through Glassboro just before 11PM EST
  by Bracdude181
 
What??? MI-61 isn’t scheduled to run weekends…
