On Conrail’s Southern Secondary, it is a North-South railroad.
Sorry all. Guess I'm still living in a CNJ kimda world.

Here’s my video of the train from May 30, which features the runaround at Cross Street. Enjoy!

I could be entirely wrong about this, but I believe something went down to farmingdale today.

While working at Pine Creek today, I heard what sounded like 4408s horn come from either Old Tavern Road or Skuankum Yellowbrook Road. I only had enough gas to get home so I was unable to go and see if the rails were shiny.
A friend of mine was with me and I asked him to check rails on his way home. He says the rails at Maxwell Road are shiny like something had gone around maybe 3-4 hours ago at the time he checked.

I honestly don't know. Can one of you guys possibly find out if something went through farmingdale? I'm really not 100% sure about this so feel free to take this with a pinch of salt.

The hi-rail guy is supposed to come on Tuesdays, perhaps that was him. I know very well that a pickup truck doesn't have a K5LA :wink: , but it would probably be known before hand if a locomotive came down . . . Also, for those who may have not been keeping count, I believe that power for Browns is 4406, 4408, and 5628. Feel free to correct me on that one.

It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.

As per a friend, the train departed Browns at 2:13 PM with NS 5628 and CSXT 4406 + 19: 17 Woodhavens and 2 tanks, with one tank in the middle and another at the end.

Pretty interesting operation south of Farmingdale tonight... NS 5628 suffered some sort of mechanical problem in Farmingdale, so the engineer operated the train from 4406. Meanwhile, the conductor was blowing the horn and guiding the engineer over the crossings via the radio from 5628. They should be at Cross Street by now...

Should make for an interesting and/or miserable drill at Woodhaven tonight with more rain on the way. Life on the railroad is often less than glamorous....

SA31 was Southbound at Route 88 at 10:20 PM tonight. Whatever happened with 5628 definitely held them up. Route 88 crossing was also damaged again. Someone hit one of the lights and bent it the wrong way...

Since July 4th is on Thursday, how will this affect SA31? Are they going to run on a different day?
