No, but it looks like it should be early October based on current progress.

reefer is ex-Amtrak, one of many which have been in storage for several years. Anyone provide reporting marks?

What's B&G?

B&G Foods at Roseland, used to be Polaner. A quick look at Google Maps, shows what appears to be a reefer and 3 tank cars on their spur.

Kenvil Team Track Expansion

Post by therudycometh » Tue Sep 09, 2014 1:29 pm

The Morristown & Erie's Kenvil Team Track facility is being expanded! A second track will more than double the facility's railcar capacity, and with its easy access right off Route 46, it will be a convenient location at which products of all shapes and sizes can be cross-dock transloaded between railcars and trucks.

For more information on this project, visit our website at http://www.merail.com/kenvil" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; or check the Morris County DOT site at http://www.morrisdot.org/projects/freig ... kenvil.asp" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.

TRACKS ARE FOR TRAINS Campaign

Post by therudycometh » Mon Sep 29, 2014 2:03 pm

As many of you on this board know, railroads can be extremely dangerous for members of the public who walk, bike, or drive on or over the tracks. Being located in one of the most densely-populated regions in the United States, the M&E has had its fair share of incidents or near-misses with members of the public.

To raise public awareness and prevent these activities, the Morristown & Erie Railway has partnered with New Jersey Operation Lifesaver and the national "See Tracks? Think Train" campaign to provide a few helpful hints about railroad safety. Check out our TRACKS ARE FOR TRAINS campaign, and remember - Stay Off! Stay Away! Stay Alive!
