Does anyone know when the new schedule with increased service will begin? Does anyone know what the departure times in High Bridge in the AM and Newark in the PM will be?
Thanks in advance!
I think 5423 is a definite extension to High Bridge (the 12:06pm departure from Newark), because on holidays this train runs as 8525 all the way up to High Bridge.
There will probably be more revenue trains up to High Bridge in the morning (currently, 5701 is the only westbound morning run, arriving in High Bridge at 8:36). Same thing in the afternoon, with more revenue trains heading east (currently, 5710 is the only inbound, leaving High Bridge at 4:45PM).
There are five afternoon trains that run up to High Bridge in the current schedule. Do any of them spend the night in High Bridge or do they all deadhead back to Raritan?
