Very interesting! I saw him at East Dover... He had about 6 box cars I had thought were all for Totowa Spur or Dietrich.... I guess Bluelinx is getting box cars again?? They seem a little more active as of late...

The Dietrich track surfaces look rusty today, looks like there hasn't been any activity since the rain.

Looks like a corn syrup tank car with some sticky residue was pulled out of Drakes Tasty cakes yesterday. Don't know why it was sitting all by its lonesome.

Word has it, that H zero 2 left Dover for points west at around noon today. I should be able to spot him on my way home then. I have no idea if weekend work is planned.

A reliable source told me they will be running today. (Sunday 10/29) Probably to Washington, but I'm not 100% sure.

H02 has been sitting in Hackettstown since friday night. So if it is running anywhere today, it will be to Dover.

HO-2 did go down to Washington. It came through Port Murray around 12:45. It is 2:40 now and it hasn't come back yet.

HO-2 just came east through Hackettstown with the blue 3057 and an NS black SD40-2 3430 with 11 cars and the caboose.

That would explain the second horn I heard. They must have picked up Friday's H02 and came back with another load of cars. Makes sense, there was no transit trains west of Dover to schedule it around.

Got a few pics of the H-02 today. The only others that I saw out watching the train was the pheasants at the pheasant farm on the Washington Secondary. The SD40-2 was in Dover this evening facing west. It will probably be returned tomorrow...or maybe this is one of the helpers for those phantom through freights.
Anyone hear about the H02 moving out of Dover?

  by washingtonsecondary
 
Where would they be moved to?

IF, it is moving, I must say, Dover is a good central location for it. I would venture to guess they couldn't move it too far from there. So, I have two guesses: 1) East Dover 2) Port Morris- again, those are my guesses IF it is indeed moving.
