Since we are looking at news articles, here’s one that might be interesting.

According to this, Beesleys Point residents want the old BL England Power Plant to be redeveloped into some sort of vacation hotspot or something along those lines.

Should they decide to do that, do y’all think it could potentially justify a Tuckahoe to Beesleys Point excursion train?

Actually, now that I think about it...

Maybe turn the old BL England site into a nice beach/picnic grove with a small train station for Seashore Lines within walking distance? Run the train with one of their RDC cars and just ferry people to and from Tuckahoe. Or use some of the other cars they have for special events. Kinda like what they do at Black River and Western.

When did they get to South Jersey?
Their movement on the regular CSAO job several weeks ago was being followed, I recall seeing somewhere. Though it was posted on this board but can’t find it here, perhaps on Facebook then? If I find it again will give the specifics.

By chance, I stumbled on this outfit named Revolution Rail which provides "railbike" excursions in Cape May.

Since the line is owned by NJDOT, is this NJDOT licensed or a "rogue" operation using track without approval?

The operation is presumably pursuant to a contract between the railbike entity and NJSL. Whether NJDOT is aware, would object, or require additional insurance or other conditions is speculative as well.
