Bound Brook Flooding?

Post by CPSK » Mon Aug 29, 2011 7:51 am

Does anyone know the status of the NS through Bound Brook NJ?
If the tracks are flooded, what would be the detour route for trains between Newark, NJ and Allentown, PA?

No idea about flooding, but if the Lehigh Line were severed, I believe NS could use trackage rights over NJT to Netcong, then use the Washington Secondary to Phillipsburg where it connects with the Lehigh Line.

That would be interesting to see. I guess the Washington sec doesn't see much traffic anymore.
