Well that is good to hear!!!
I wonder why SRNJ was let go originally??? Did Salem County have some prior "beef" with them or something??

They didnt pay salem county there rent. And they didn't maintenance the track to good.

Noticed a covered hopper spotted at the feed mill in Woodstown....first time I've seen that. Track still looks like a train would derail standing still.

I'm sorry to see that 410 has met it's end. I worked on it over at Ball and ran it a several times, and remember it as a decent running little unit. It was very close to as-built condition, almost a time capsule. Did they even try to sell it? I know a few people that may have been interested in something that size.

I hope 412 and the O&W unit aren't next; I went up to Cape Cod on SRNJ's behalf to inspect 412 prior to it's purchase. It too was a good engine when it arrived at Salem. The O&W unit I know very little about, but may have been the most historical of the three; I know it was the oldest.

What plnas do they have for the passnger cars? I saw a Bud car, Erie coach and some green cars thje last time my son in law took me there.

Reports from a few weeks ago indicate 1801 may be next in SRNJ's scrapping spree. Supposedly 3579 was done as well.

Can anyone confirm either, or if 1801 is still there?

I sort of got led to this thread after watching an interesting video on youtube about all of the old equipment on this road. I also read on Wiki that in 2013 the NJDOT gave them a grant to repair track. There are videos showing operations in 2014 & 2015. Maybe there is another thread with more up to date info, but, I am not sure which one it would be. I am just curious. What is the latest with this railroad? Are all the upgrades done? How many customers do they have? Are there any new customers?

Rumor has it destined for the New Hope & Ivy Land RR.

The former NYO&W 44 tonner that was formerly at Winslow is reported to be at Scranton, Pa now. Delivered this week. House cleaning on the SRNJ?

Well at least that had the good class to tack it on to the rear of the train.

That's what I was thinking...a REAL EOT device.
