You can thank our governor for re-stacking the Pinelands Commission membership so the pipeline vote would go the way he desired, after it was defeated during a previous Commission vote.The pipeline is to be built mostly in the shoulder of existing paved roads and the rest in long cleared rights of way. Not a single pine tree will suffer harm from the pipeline. The generating station will be permanently closed if the natural gas pipeline is not built. The economics in the wholesale electric market in the area are favorable only to natural gas generation. So either way, Beasley's Point track will have no customers.

If people would all help each other out and not be a bunch of idiots this whole hobby would be a lot better.SE Pa- you have no idea how out of control it's become. I left all of this area's groups because of it. Too many fans, especially the younger ones, have become extremely evil, sneaky and self centered. They all know everything that goes on and share what they feel like sharing because they don't get that every group has bad members and they let the majority of good pay for it. Coupled with the fact that there's a lot of them with shady histories (including criminal histories) in their own life in these groups - if you know what I mean. It's very sad what the railfan world has become. I shudder to think what will happen to the community the day the last of the old fans pass away. The bottom line is the community today is inundated with tons of lowlife trash. It's scary......
