NJ Transit Equipment Move Surprise

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Last November I took a photo of a very Rare occurance on the NJCL. A NJ Transit GP40PH-2B #4212 towing a DEAD NJ Transit ALP-44 down the NJCL westbound down to Long Branch.

 

Here are the photos

Enjoy,

Great pictures. What happened to that 44?

 

I was waiting on a diesel to go through Matawan today but it never happened.

Surprisingly about 15 to 20 minutes later not only did 4417 come back it had 4212 behind him and a comet III Coach behind him. By the way 4417 was pulling the train. I did not get photos of it though unfortuniately.

Well, no diesel trains north of Long Branch on weekends. I think its rare to see a diesel run up to NY on a weekend on the NJCL in service however.

That's exactly what I was waiting for that one rare occasion when it did.

The ONLY NJCL diesel trains are the X Trains X232 and X233. Here are the times for the train.

 

X233 After 2:30 PM at Matawan.

 

X232 Before 11:00 AM at Matawan.

 

Some notices about these trains

 

1. X Trains are schedueled trains that DO NOT CARRY PASSENGERS! When they come they fly through so be ready to get a grab shot if you want a photo of the train.

 

2. I have seen from personal experience that Train X233 has come EARLIER THAN NORMAL DEPENDING ON HOW BUSY THE MMC IS WITH FUELING THE TRAINS.

X232 Before 11:00 AM at Matawan.

 

I was at Matawan from 8:03 just before the 8:06 until about 11:20. It never showed up.

The train only runs on weekends and or Major Holidays.
