One of which is for the Dover and Delaware River Railroad, and it says the money will be used in Ocean, Middlesex, and Monmouth counties.That begs the question, is the 10 year contract entered into circa 1999 by Clayton and CMSL still in effect? It likely would be far more cost efficient for C&D to operate the entire distance to Clayton, rather than interchanging with a CMSL/NJSL isolated section of track.
All of these areas are home to at least one Conrail line served by a local out of Browns yard, one of which is the Southern Secondary.
There’s been rumors going around that Chesapeake and Delaware might takeover operations on all central Jersey freight lines from Conrail, meaning Seashore Lines would exchange cars with C&D in Lakehurst and not Conrail. Is this true??
