On Conrail’s Southern Secondary, it is a North-South railroad.
Sorry all. Guess I'm still living in a CNJ kimda world.

Here’s my video of the train from May 30, which features the runaround at Cross Street. Enjoy!

I could be entirely wrong about this, but I believe something went down to farmingdale today.

While working at Pine Creek today, I heard what sounded like 4408s horn come from either Old Tavern Road or Skuankum Yellowbrook Road. I only had enough gas to get home so I was unable to go and see if the rails were shiny.
A friend of mine was with me and I asked him to check rails on his way home. He says the rails at Maxwell Road are shiny like something had gone around maybe 3-4 hours ago at the time he checked.

I honestly don't know. Can one of you guys possibly find out if something went through farmingdale? I'm really not 100% sure about this so feel free to take this with a pinch of salt.

The hi-rail guy is supposed to come on Tuesdays, perhaps that was him. I know very well that a pickup truck doesn't have a K5LA :wink: , but it would probably be known before hand if a locomotive came down . . . Also, for those who may have not been keeping count, I believe that power for Browns is 4406, 4408, and 5628. Feel free to correct me on that one.

CSX 4406 Leading today...
It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.
