Have estate collection of 35mm color Kodak dupe slides (at least 36+ slides) taken in 1980 on NRHS fantrip at Earle. This is NOT the 'years-later' trip with smooth side coaches but the original 1980 trip with open window cnj-njdot coaches.

Anyone interested...selling as a set only.

Baldwin diesels VOs, sandy hook piers...lots of interesting navy rr train photos...all taken legally.

They just finished redoing the Kings Hwy crossing and they took out the second track at the crossing like they've done with all the new crossing projects. They ran a test train today with an SW1200, a VO, and about 15 cars...

Was there a train going through at around 10 AM today? I was near BCC, and I heard a train whistle. Did anyone else hear/possibly see it?

Anyone know why they're removing the 2nd track from the grade crossings? Obviously, I assume increased costs/maintenance, etc.
  by JohnFromJersey
 
Most likely. Earle isn't shipping weapons as much as it used to 40-50 years ago, so a second track is way more than needed, and an added cost.

They'll probably keep parts of the second track just in case, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them rip it up entirely for scrap metal.

I've heard that the second track is owned by the Army which would possibly be why they're not maintaining it like they do with the other track.

The who owns the other in-service track?
  by ChrisU
 
The active track is owned by the Navy.

A ship came into port today; expect trains to run for the next few days

Hey Donny, It would be nice if you caught a vid on this line. It is the least filmed railway in the world and the only footage there is by Christopher Espectio.

Not to bust your bubble, Erik, but recording military traffic these days may get you a visit from the authorities, please see

Pre-9/11/01 was a different era, if you know what I mean....

Yeah, Chris, I knew that, and that's what I was kinda afraid of... last shot was in 2000 I think. So yeah... Rules have changed these days...

So sorry... now that I know that, I don't want anybody to get in trouble.
