Today (3/7) saw a rare, lite engine move from Tuckahoe to the wye at Bulson Street in Camden, to spin a pair of the GP38's on lease to Cape May Seashore Lines. The CA-84 crew was onboard.

The CA-84 "extra" crew coming off of the Beesley's Point Secondary at CP BROWN in Camden:

Both GP38's,
-GMTX #2015 (Built in 1969, and intended for use on the PRSL as #2013 ) and,
-GMTX #2661 (Built in 1970, and intended for use on the PRSL as #2011) on the north leg of the Bulson Street wye. As seen from the Broadway overpass:

Finally, my shot of the locomotives headed back down the "Bees" to Tuckahoe, and past the former Audubon station which was built circa 1890, and currently serves as a dentist office:

Looks like more car storage business for CMSL.

This is from another chat board that I frequent and moderate, observed in Ashland, Va on 4/1: yesterday morning's unit tank train was K496, storage move to Tuckahoe, NJ

Conrail FC80 brought 100 empty tank cars from Pavonia on Sunday. The train went south on Conrail's track to clear the switch to Tony's siding and the power uncoupled. Tony's Geeps then coupled to the rear and pulled the train north past the switch to the CMSL main and pushed the train south for storage.

Glenn,

That storage move took place Sunday afternoon (4/5). FC-80 crew I believe. They took the empty tanks south to Tuckahoe, then returned north with a bunch of empty gondolas.

While helping out a friend in Lakehurst today I noticed that there was tire tracks on the rails at the Union Ave crossing. I checked the entire line from Lakehurst to Woodmansie and found that fallen trees had been removed and weeds close the rails appeared to have been run over. The same tire tracks seen in Lakehurst were also at all the railroad crossings I checked. Looks like a high-rail truck went down the line recently....

Looks like they had a weed sprayer with them.

Looks like the ROW inspection/weed spraying on the line in Lakehurst and points south was more thorough than I initially thought. They sprayed a wider area and nearly all of the vegetation near the tracks is dead, along with the aforementioned tree removal.

Normally NJSL comes in once a year to check on the line and do basic preventative maintenance, but up until now they haven't been as thorough. Maybe we will see some trains soon?
