A flyover on google earth with recent imagery seems to indicate the PRR baggage and Lehigh Valley diner are gone from Winslow Junction. Anyone know if they were scrapped or by some miracle saved?

The Township of Monroe had a post on their Facebook page stating that the crossing on 322 is going to be replaced this week. Any idea the last time a train actually crossed 322? I been travelling 322 for the last 11 years and the only thing I've ever seen was tank cars in storage.

"On Monday, April 20, 2020, U.S 322 (South Black Horse Pike) will be closed for all vehicles at the railroad crossing at milepost 32.44 (between Piney Hollow Road and Cains Mill Road). NJDOT will begin a railroad crossing upgrade of the surface and warning devices at that location. This area will not be passable for local traffic. The job is expected to be completed by April 30,2020. Detour signs will be posted in advance of the construction site by the NJDOT contractor. The detour has also been attached to this advisory.

Direct any questions to the Monroe Township Police Traffic Safety Bureau at 856-728-9800 ext 546."

2008 was NOT the last time the rails were utilized at the Rt 322 crossing. Misinformation

SRNJ did some repair work to a broken rail a few years back, and ran a couple of cars across to test the repair and crossing protection.

The work scheduled for April 30th is to keep the Rt 322 crossing in operating condition in ordinance with the line's owner.

Do they still run south to winslow hot mix? I was there last summer and the area looked pretty overgrown like it hadn't been used in long time.

Perhaps not enough asphalt business to warrant trainloads of stone?
