My first multilevel sighting

Recommended Posts

I finally got to see my first multilevel train. A nine car mutilevel train pulled into Aberdeen-Matawan station being pulled by an ALP46. Now I know for sure they are running on the NJCL.

I'm glad that you were finally able to see a multi-level consist. I have yet to photograph a multi-level consist on the NJCL.

NJ Transit has been doing a lot of strange things these past few months in regards to locomotives and passenger cars.

Also, I forgot to add, I spotted my first diesel train at Aberdeen-Matawan. All this during peak hours. There was trains pulling in every 6 minutes of so. A very busy station during these hours.

Regardless it was very strange seeing a Comet V cab car with a few Bi-level coaches. They do do that on MBTA, MARC, and VRE.

Aberedeen-Matawan is a MAJOR NJ Transit station and has a lot of riders.

It was great seeing all them trains pulling in so often. I'm usually out here on weekends but I actually made it on an early Friday night. I'm thinking about moving out here so this might be an everyday thing for me.

Neat I went to a Marlboro school. I worried that NJ Transit will get into some hot water, I've seen Bi-Levels on the NEC and well those coaches look tipsy with speed.

The multilevels have three distinct levels. This is why they are named 'Multilevels' and not 'Bilevels'. The main seating areas towards the center of the car are above and below the 'normal' level on single-level cars. However, the ends of the car are at the same height as the single level cars, and you can pass from a multilevel car to a single-level car (or vice-versa) just as if you were passing between two single-level cars.

Great analysis and information as I never been in one before. Would you know the number of seats in the middle level of the car?
