A whole back, a friend and I were talking about Fern Rock (Track 0) to Hoboken via West Trenton as a new home for the ACES equipment. The idea would be to plunk a bar car in the middle of the train and go after the "leasure" market. Service would run Friday, Saturday, Sunday, with trains into late night. Unlike ACES, it wouldn't need an electric engine, this one could use diesel only, in a push-pull setup. We figured there are so many people traveling between Philly and NYC on the various train and bus services, plus people driving, we should be able to convince enough of them to take the fun train to have a shot at breaking even.
