Went through Lambertville yesterday. Saw where there is farm equipment on tracks south of Rte 29 grade crossing.

I was in the Stop & Shop on Route 37 in Toms River and saw some pamphlets for the BR&W passenger trains. And it looked some have been taken, so that's a good sight that there's some marketing on this side of the state.

For the past three seasons we have used a vender to get out public timetables out, usually in super wawa's in Ocean, Monmouth, Middlesex, Mercer, Burlington, Hunterdon, and Somerset Counties, and Bucks, and Montgomery Counties in PA. As well as the NY Waterway terminals in NJ, and some select supermarkets. Glad you have noticed them, hopefully others has as well.

Looking good! Haven't seen #60 since it pulled us on a ride on a cold winter day when my kids were toddlers, about 20 years ago. JS

When we took a ride a couple weekends ago i was talking to the trainman and he was telling me the 4666 is headed to pa. I was coming back from the antique tractor show in hopewell today and decide to drive passed ringoes station. I Saw 1202 I believe pulling the doodlebug away from where it had been sitting, is it leaving soon or just being moved around ?

I rode the first train on the 'Triple Header Day' on Sept. 27th and saw the doodlebug on the right side of the platform. It was moved away from it's previous spot by the engine house.

Here are a few photos from "Triple Header Day"

After arriving in Flemington, the switchers get into position for the trip to Ringoes.
Then it was time for #60 to move on the runaround.
#60, like other steam engines, always draws a crowd.

A Ringoes, I got a photo of the Erie caboose and the PRR doodlebug.
The crew giving #60 a lookover before heading back to Flemington.

Back at Flemington, the switchers get ready for the second departure. And then #60 coupled to the train.

Last, but not least, the train passing behind the Ford dealer.

Hope you enjoy!

Christmas has come early for the Black River. Santa has delivered 500 new ties for the Alexauken division!

In other tie-related news, we have installed new wood South of the yard down to Boss Road.

New ties installed North of Ringoes station today. All of us were wearing our Santa hats today, so when we would clear up to let the Santa trains pass by, there was nothing but friendly waves, and little smiling faces.

It's December 19, and steam is still running on the Black River, and....

We are now past milepost 6 with new ties.

"Next stop, Lambertville"

That is a neat looking machine, how many times an hour can it do? Also do you have to dig out the ties first or can it get a hold and pull them out?
