There was a power change at Browns. 5634 is gone and CSX 6160 replaced it.

So the current browns yard roster is:
CSX 6160
CSX 4429
NS 5286

Thank you. Did they come down very early yesterday? I tried to catch them on my way home as I went through Howell, I must have missed them.

Is it 2009 again?

I thought Murphy opened up construction. One would think there would be a pent up demand for lumber in Lakewood. Or is the problemwithdelayed delivery from the mills?

Forgot to mention this as I've been busy, but on Sunday OI-16 brought three empty flatbed cars to browns. A friend tells me that these specific cars are usually used to carry sections of rail on MOW trains. Is there any trackwork planned for the southern or somewhere else in central jersey?
  by RailsEast
 
Generally, empties into Browns indicates that a customer has requested a specific type of car to be loaded to be shipped out. If track work was on the schedule, I would guess that these flat cars would have inbound rail on them for use in the area. Seven or eight years ago, there were 3 of these cars on the SA-31 with loaded stick rail destined to NWS Earle for use on their system.
For small projects, CR will have a Hyrail truck come down with a few lengths of rail or will contract with Railroad Construction Co. who has a small yard in Eatontown with various rail products (switch frogs & points, stick rail, tie plates, derails, etc).
