Re: Maine Narrow Gauge Museum Discussion

We're all suppose to be working to towards the same goal and we end up fighting. This is the kind of stuff that kills preservation efforts. Unfortunately, it seems no one bothered to ask an obvious "what if" in the event things don't work out as planned. You have to expect cost overruns on a restora...

Re: West side of Newark Branch

Re: New NJT Heritage cars

They should have used PC and not the PRR. Since they used the PRR, they should have used the Erie and the DL&W and not the EL for the same reason. Wish they had wrapped locomotives. Would have been interesting to see an ALP-46 in Tuscan red with cat whiskers not to mention a GP-40 painted up CNJ aga...

Re: PRR Amboy Secondary Questions.

The railroads don't want short haul business with containers but an even bigger issue is how do you unload them at the distribution center? The centers aren't going to spring for the equipment to off load the containers.

Much more economical they way it is.

A sad day for all here on railroad.net.

I didn't know Noel personally but always respected him for his knowledgeable posts. He will be missed by many.

Re: Thinking of making the switch from B&B to engineering.

NJ Transit is in need of locomotive engineers. They just graduated one class and I think they have three going now.

Not sure if/when there will be additional classes but you can check the NJT website for info. https://www.njtransit.com/tm/tm_servlet ... =CareersTo

Re: At Dover: why do trains go to the yard, not back to NY?

Also, train sets are not locked onto one line. The next train out might have a set that is required to cover trains on another line.

Maybe we should resurrect this idea for the Princeton Branch....

Or maybe lease the Colorado Rail Car they tested (if it even exists anymore. I know the company doesn't.).

Re: NJ Transit blames WWE after fans stuck for hours

Murphy said “We’re fixing it. We’re gonna learn from this. I’ll be damned if it happens again.”

Does that mean a bigger operating budge so they can hire crews just to work the special event rather than using crews already working?
