Toys R Us no longer receives regular shipments so the High Bridge Branch south of Kenvil is more or less idle.
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

It was just paved about two weeks ago.Yes, but it is still a shame that Toys R Us and Target no longer get shipments, especially after the County just constructed flashers on Route 10.
High Bridge Branch had a train on it a week ago. However it only went a few hundred feet south of the lower Berkshire Valley Road crossing. It was three loads of lumber; unloaded just south of the Berkshire Valley Road crossing. It did not cross Route 46.

And OT, the High Bridge Branch has not seen a train since December!!!
I drove by Holland Manufacturing the other day and the area looks very tight for the run-around to fit between the existing main and the pole line. Is there more room than I think there is the pole line being relocated?
They'll shock some people on 10 the first time they cross to go to Kuikens - first movement since what - 2002-2003? Wickes didn't get much by rail the last few years.

State law that everyone (with a couple exceptions) has to call a phone number for free markout service a few days before digging more than 4 inches or so. Different colors for water, sewer, electric, natural gas, and so forth. So if you are planting a balled bush in your backyard you are supposed to call. It's one way to determine if near-term grade crossing work is planned as you noted.
