Well i think i figured this new site out. I'm still hearing the same things, mid April start up. I also heard 20,000 loads of sand. Two jobs would be created one most likely out of Browns to taxi down to Manchester, the other would sign up in Bayonne Two sets of power and three sets of 50 cars. I also heard that our track dept says it can rehab the 4 miles of track in a weeks time.
As for the shove car.... we call them Splat's... short for shoving platform or the sound you make if you hit somthing. they offer NO protection from anything, i'd rather ride the end of the car than take the splat.
