During Conrail's early years, I believe the road freight which ran from E'port to Red Bank was ER-1. He usually ran daily Monday through Saturday with a mid morning arrival at Red Bank.

Much traffic was controlled by phone calls to dispatch from the many octagonal concrete phone booths along the route. (Especially at sidings) IDK about the particular signal you cite at Lakewood, but remeber that passenger traffic had priority over freight in those days and the freights nearly always took the sidings and phoned dispatch. Hope that helps. If you need an example of the booths visit Farmingdale.
