Looks like the two for Woodhaven are Plywood loads. First time I recall seeing plywood shipped to them by centerbeam. Usually they get those big portions by boxcar...

No 1888? This is probably the first run out of Jamesburg since the reconnection (that I know of) where 1888 and 752 weren't paired to some degree on the train

Train appears to have parked on the South Wye Leg in Farmingdale...

South at DCS LAKEWOOD 9:55 AM

4 Woodhavens.

Still don't see why they have 2 engines for such a small train.

They run two engines for a couple of reasons. One , it speeds up switching out Woodhaven since they don't have to run down to the run around track, and second , they like to run short hood forward for better visibility.

Also means they don't tread on Cross Street, a big bone of contention among locals. I'm reasonably sure D&RR management would have taken that into consideration.
