Word is 2015 is getting repairs done if that’s what you meant with the ?????.
It is. Hopefully it won’t be gone long. Of the engines in their fleet that one is a particular favorite of mine.

Maybe they'll have both six axles for that train next year. Working on getting the other compliant.

Saw the second longest train I ever saw on the former PRSL. 133 cars headed from Pennsville to Camden today.

What's in Pennsville that would generate that much traffic?

There's a big oil refinery at the end of the line. I think he's talking about CA11 in which case all of those are outbounds from everything the CA11 serves, so there would be Paulsboro and SMS cars on that train too.

Kindly excuse the off topic post, but the longest P-RSL freight train that I saw had 94 cars, passing through Collingswood southbound in 1946. My older brother counted the cars. I don't remember how many engines it had.

Why would this post be off-topic?? JS

Most of CA11’s cars usually come from Paulsboro. The poster probably saw the train between there and Camden. They’ve hauled more than that before but not too often. The train actually goes to Carney’s Point not Pennsville -which is the next town down from Carney’s Point.
