DRRR would service Woodhaven and whoever else first, and then go down to Lakehurst to drop the sand cars off???And that's why I would have expected Freehold-Farmingdale to be done first or at least concurrently: more efficient use of motive power, and no Red Bank-South Amboy traffic on the coast line. If the sand trains are to run at all.
But then you're talking about probably 50 car loads twice a week, would probably need another engine or two, especially if 2006 is having issues.
