It's like government bureaucracy. Just keep adding layers (or carriers in this case).
Be well. Do good work.

They are severely undercapitalized, and couldnt afford to contribute to the trackwork that is going on now.1. Not sure I agree with NJSL/CMSL being "severely undercapitalized," IIRC, CMSL in South Jersey has a fair amount of locomotives at their disposal, and those locomotives seem to be newer and/or in better shape than some of the locomotives that have been used on the FIT and SOUS by DRRR. That being said DRRR locomotives seem to be used far more often and on a regular basis than CMSL locomotives at this time. Also, DRRR's track work, IIRC, is being funded with grant money, not sure how much of their own money is going into that...
2. Also, their dockets of unpaid back taxes to the state of NJ would have to be settled 1st, too.
3. this crossing signal stuff could easily be one of those budgeted things that gets done whether u need it or not, cause its budgeted.
4. if this is north (east) of the TRIT connection, then its CSAO territory...not clayton?NJSL, at least as i understand it.

That supports the questionable financial condition.

You need to conduct a search using at least part of the name of the railroad and another search using the railroad owner's name as I recall at least a couple of the judgments may have been against the owner personally. Here is the link to the search site: https://portal.njcourts.gov/webe40/Judg ... arch.faces

Does that mean CMSL is paying off the debt or have the owed parties given up on collecting the money?Can you give me the judgment number of one that dropped to $0? I'll look at it.
