Does anyone have any updates on the Lakewood-Woodmansie extension? I haven't heard about here or any of the other threads regarding it in quite some times.
The track between Cross Street and Lakehurst is pretty bad. Some missing rail on a new bridge and under the Route 70 bridge is still a big problem. Other than that, the track from there to Clayton is fine. All that is needed is brush clearing of recent tress and weeds that have grown.
So Now I'm confused "pretty bad" "big problem" or just some brush cleaning?

Anyone know when the last time Conrail delivered or picked up anything from the Earle weapons station or the Lakehurst base?
A few years ago when the last Navy Genset got delivered.

Just some weeds and a few fallen trees.

It's paired with 6228 and is likely the combo for this Thursday . . .

Today's train has 4421, 6160 and 19. 18 for Woodhaven and 1 for Bel-Ray. So yeah, it is fixed. Should be on Church now.

I’m home in Neptune and I just heard the train blowing for Farmingdale. A friend of mine was out there and was able to confirm that I heard SA-38. They should be coming up on Bel-Ray in a matter of minutes from now.
