NS seems to be on good terms with NJT because we never have any problems running our trains on NJT rails, so why not run our trains on NJT? NJT would be a more direct route and it is faster. As far as going from Croxton - Oak Island, NYS&W has no tracks going into Oak Island. All trains going to Oak Island from Croxton use the National Docks or the P&H.

They want to have as little to do with NJTransit and thier commuter trains as possible. Thats why most of NS's freight now terminates at Allentown or Bethlehem. The only traffic that goes east of there is only the traffic that HAS to go to New Jersey. Any traffic that would originate west of Binghamton to head east such as traffic from the WNY&P (Meadville Line) would likely run down to Allentown via the D&H. The only saving grace for the "Tier" is the fact NS doesnt anyone else to get it so they will keep it with the NYSW as a tenant. As for the unlikely possibilty that NS would put through traffic on the Tier, I sincerely doubt that NS would use the NYSW. The route is FAR TOO S-L-O-W. It takes 3-4 hours just to get from Little Ferry to Warwick and then another 1/2 hour+ to get to Campbell Hall.
