Special thanks to @Bracdude181 for telling me the grade crossings.

One more viewing location is the NW end of Shark River Station Road.

I left that part out because there’s a woman on that road who frequently calls the police on anyone she deems “suspicious”

Be careful filming there. Chances are she will call about “gang activity on the tracks” if she sees you.

Again with these gang remarks? And you know for sure that it's a woman that's calling the cops on you? Are you sure this woman didn't call the cops to report you kids trespassing on railroad property? The tines we've stopped by Shark River Rd, it's always been a guy who comes out of his house.

The “gang remark” is in regards to what this woman usually told the police. There used to be another group of young adults who would come and see the SA31 all the time, and this woman would always call on them, seemingly regardless of what they were doing. Wether or not they were trespassing is knowledge I do not have, not that I care anyways.

I do not know of any other people on that road who call on people watching the train. Acemac, when was the last time you bumped into the person you mentioned?

Not that it's any of your business but I spoke with him a few times around and after takeover and most recently was about a month or two ago. Guess these interactions were "gang activity".

Nothing going on at the team track in Freehold. Was going to take some pix but why bother , plus it was raining. Maybe they are done and will leave it as a short stub? They old rail is still there set aside. No new ties or material delivered. The roller compactor is still parked there by the trees.

Maybe, but I have to wonder if they weren’t gonna use that part, why even go through the effort of removing the buried track to begin with?

May be waiting for a week the track is not going to be used. Last I looked (last Friday) there was a pole car sitting there. EHAllen may be busy for a while.

The pole car was empty today

They've been consistently getting 3 or 4 pole cars every week since at least January.

As to the time thing it's been consistently an hour off from eastern. Dunno where the server is located.
