Most likely yes! There is one local that uses 6 axle power generally off the 32A and 21M...Bano said it!

Believe it or not the H07 is the only Local allowed to use 6 axels on NJT. Only other time you can use 6 axels on NJT ML/BC/ST Lines is when you serve an interchange like Greenwood lakes railroad, and NYS&W.

Not true the Greenwood Lake RR is not consider and interchange on NJT...The only interchange on the ML is NYS&W at BT.....As of right know...

Well you can tell that to Freddy from NS. If you are a train dispatcher you must know freddy. Also I made this move plenty of times with a Dash 8 to bring cars to the greenwood lake interchage, also when I call up the NJT dispatcher to give him the information he says its allowed besause Greenwood Lakes is a interchange.

Bano or anyone: Do you know the schedule for the H07 this weekend? I just moved in walking distance of the tracks. I know it ran last Saturday morning but I'm guessing it will only run on Sunday this week?

Sunday through Thursday 530pm the crew is on duty. Figure 730pm on is when the H07 leaves the yard. They used to start on 1pm on sundays but they changed the crew that runs that train.

The NYGL "siding" is still listed as The Dundee Spur. The 6 axle restriction for NJT is the following " All 6 axle engines are prohibited from operating in industrial sidings"

So while to NJT it isnt the NY&GL Interchange, it also isnt an industrial siding, so regardless its legal. Also be carefull the ES40DC's arent listed in the Timetable, so techenically you cant operate them on NJT.

Does this mean that the train will be twice as long tonight?

NIce i'll be sitting down in saddle brook waiting for the nysw su-99 to move out and hopefully catch this going north on the bcline.

When the tracks become 3 again towards ridgewood, what track do they usually run the freights on?

Was Teacup or teabag or what ever his name is the engineer? If so then that would explain why the conductor got sick. That bro smells worse than the K277 on a hot summer day. I remember when I was working for the NS and no one wanted to work with him back then either.
