Are they daytimers, which would make 'em good for some shooting?? I am longing to catch a nice freight on the Raritan River Draw!! And do any of them run on Saturdays or Sundays?? Many thanks for any good info!!
As far as I know, that hasn't happened in a while, but it does happen
I saw a westbound sitting at Wood about 445pm or so on the Chemical Coast, im assuming going to Browns.
There is a tremendous amount of freight activity through Perth Amboy, with the steel plant being serviced daily, the runs back and forth to Browns, and the runs up and down the Perth Amboy Industrial, which connects at Wood to the Chemical Coast.
Railroading is not a career, it's a lifestyle! Railroading........what other life would I wanna live?
