Re: Abandoned tracks in Hillsborough, NJ

Still a supporting pier for the railroad bridge along the ROW to the south of Somerville.

Re: Brightline aka All Aboard Florida Orlando - Miami FL FEC

If I was a pedestrian there, I don't think I'd wait 1:15 to cross the tracks where there's good sight lines in both directions. While I think I understand what you're saying, it is a troubling sentiment because you are probably correct in that the average pedestrian would probably get antsy waiting...

Re: The Montclair/Boonton Line Thread

Never seen anything that specific. My best guess to find what you are looking for would be the following: See if you can find boarding numbers for Hoboken in the afternoon and then do some simple math to calculate the difference between that number and all inbound boardings at outlying stations. You...

On a related note: all Texas School Book Depository employees will have all packages searched upon entry to the building.

Re: Phillipsburg Rail Service—Four Years, $90 Million

Moderators: Feel free to remove this snark. No childish cries of "censorship" will bellow forth from my keyboard. ☺. I was just having a touch of fun at the expense of an agency that must pride itself on the slowness of its trains. If operated by New Jersey transit, simply use one of the following ...

Heh, would be interesting if, after all the PAS drama, NS bought the B&A across Massachusetts.

Re: Amtrak and the USPS

Hello Amtrak Forum, I read recently that the USPS briefly used contracted to move mail on some of it's passenger trains until a few years ago. And maybe again in a proper sentence, good sir? :-D I swear I am not trying to be a jerk or a clichéd internet forum grammar troll, and with all of my meds ...

Re: Post EHH Changes for CSX

The only thing that really stands out in all of that is the sale of the old B&A across Massachusetts. I would imagine that is a very profitable route with a sh-t ton (technical term, perfectly accurate) of interchange (traditional freight) and quite a lot of intermodal. Seems the only major line lis...

Re: NS taking over part of D&H, fate of Bangor & Slateford??

Wow. This is potentially terrible news for the railroad between Phillipsburg and Stroudsburg. Not a heck of a lot of online business...or really any at all that I can think of outside of the Phillipsburg area. Power plant is gone. There used to be a plastics business in Portland, by I have seen noth...

Re: 1962 PRR grade crossing collision

Depends the size of the drum and the capacity of the car. Dried industrial-type sands weigh in a little over 100 pounds per cubic foot (IIRC). Just checked: 95.46 lbs./cubic foot. There are 7.865 cubic feet per 55 gallon drum. Thusly, a 55 gallon drum weighs in around 751 pounds, give or take. 76 dr...

Re: 1962 PRR grade crossing collision

Just a guess: a local block plant that I sell sand fines and powder to ships truckloads of sand in from Lake Erie due to its color. Could be something like that. Who knows?
