The other day I biked to Lincoln Park station, when I went to the smaller parking lot facing Park Avenue I noticed some paint markings on the ground, there's also some text which appears to indicate that something will be built there.

Any information on this?

This past Friday 10/18 something went thru MP 20.9 unscheduled around 5-5:10AM. Believe it was heading WB.

This past SATURDAY 10/19 something went thru Mountain View Station around 11:30am definitely heading WB. But I couldn't see it if I had to guess it was the aqua train.

11/4 MON 01:00 something went by Wayne Rt.23 and then again 20 minutes later, heard the whistle both times. Can't see from where I am. Believe it was EB then WB but could be wrong.

Have a feeling might be the aqua train as the horn doesn't sound like one of the normal trains that go by. It is not the geometry train as that has a distinctive horn, (although coincidentally it was on duty tonight out of Hoboken at 9pm)

The Geometry train has a regular diesel on both ends. Should be 4202 west 4104 east
