Local Freights ran out of Bridgeton Jct. toward Bridgeton and Mauricetown (map at http://mapmaker.rutgers.edu/HISTORICALM ... R_1941.jpg
). When headed down the Bridgeton branch the local freight was known as “First Bridgeton.”
Further north, another local freight ran out of Lakehurst, to cover the southern division towards Whitings and to cover the Barnegat Branch. When headed toward Barnegat it was known as “First Barnegat.”
Out of Red Bank, even further north, there was a local freight that ran down the Southern Division towards Lakewood and covered that division to just north of Lakehurst. It also ran on the NJCL and was known there as the Bradley Beach Turner.
Also out of Red Bank was a local that covered the Seashore Branch, and was known as QV 1 to Freehold.
JS 1 and SJ 2 ran until 1976 [edited Jan 13, 2005]. The locals to Barnegat and to Lakehurst were later combined by ConRail and run out of Browns Yard as a single train known as SA35. It now appears to be renamed as SA31, and exists today.
