Reference Camp Kilmer LVRR rail service: The camp was primarily served by the PRR. The LVRR came in on a spur line. It is doubtful that there was much, if any, traffic after the base closed with the end of WWII. When it was reactivated during the Korean War there may have been some traffic. After he Korean War the base served as a U.S. Army Reserve HQ and a Nike/Hercules missile support facility until it was closed and sold at auction in 1963.
LVRR ETT No. 15 dated Sept. 25, 1949 shows symbol freight KY-2 departing Packerton at 11:45 P.M. and arriving Perth Amboy at 7:00 A.M. The westward train, YK-1 is shown departing Perth Amboy at 7:00 P.M. and arriving Packerton at 2:00 A.M. These trains operated daily except Sunday.
The September 28, 1952 ETT still shows the same schedule.
The April 26, 1953 ETT no longer shows a schedule for the KY-2/YK-1 but does show a schedule for PM-1 Perth Amboy-Manchester and BP-2 Buffalo-Perth Amboy, both trains being daily.
LVRR ETT No. 3 dated September 26, 1954 no longer shows a scheduled freight train originating or departing Perth Amboy.
Have no info about what power would have been assigned to these trains.
