At the M&E/CSX interchange track near Harrison, I saw 2 covered hoppers and 2 loaded centerbeam cars waiting for M&E pickup, today around 6:30pm, while riding NJ Transit into NYC.

on Monday 10/17 I was getting my hair cut in Flanders and I noticed the distinct wheel squeaking. Here comes 2 alcos (17 & 18?) across the bridge. Followed by 3 covers hoppers and a long string of tank cars. I assume they are shuffling the tank cars around due to the issues near Morristown. Any case it was neat to see such a long consist on that ex Jersey Central line.

The M&E Railway 2016 Polar Express Train Ride should provide both a fun experience for children riding onboard the train, and an interesting photo/video opportunity for trackside observers. The M&E has invested substantial resources in this operation --- they have been working on upgrading a bunch of their passenger cars and I believe they have a trainset of about 10 cars ready for this big professional theatrical production.

There are numerous scheduled departures from Whippany between November 25 and December 30. Some are already sold out, but there are others with seats available.
