Slim to none! The line to Lambertville has not been completely cleared of brush and/or rehabbed. I believe Sandy Ridge Mt Airy Rd is as far as the rehabilitation has gotten.
When I rode the train back in October, I was told that 2021 is the target year for service resumption into Lambertville.

Correct, though meeting that 2021-2022 soft target is largely dependent upon receipt of donations to acquire necessary ties and other materials. https://fundrazr.com/c15nIe?ref=ab_b5RZ ... 7PTecSKgSY

I would love to volunteer my time and equipment clearing brush when the time comes. How do I present myself to the people that organize this?

Sorry if we can't get to Lambertville fast enough for some people. You do realize this project depends on donations and volunteer labor, right? If you want it to happen quicker, break out your check book, or sign up and get qualified for MOW service!
