NJ Transit Oceanport Ave. Crossing in Little Silver NJ to be redone

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

NJ Transit will be redoing the railroad crossing in Little Silver where I live starting on October 3rd 2007. The crossing will be closed. The only thing I can say is that its about time.

Hello,

 

 

The crossing is falling apart. The rubberized sections of the crossing for the roadway are coming apart. Yesterday I took a look at the crossing and parts of the rubber crossing are lying along the tracks. When I drive over the crossing its a BUMPY ride. NJ Transit actually did the same work a few years ago for another crossing in my area. When the work starts I will of course take photos.:rolleyes: I wouldn't expect NJT to change anything with the crossing signals themselves but with NJ Transit you never know.

Excellent shots! You always catch them at the right time. Did you get to see them put the tracks in place?

Great pics Eric. The pic with the track sections and the concrete sleepers is very cool. The little giant vehicle is awesome! I think I'm going to try and be there on Saturday. It looked like it was slow moving mow consist.

Here is a photo of train X233 flying through Little Silver NJ. The locomotives on the train were GP40PH-2 #4146 and F40PH-2CAT #4125. F40's are getting HARDER AND HARDER TO PHOTOGRAPH ON THE NJCL!

Here is a video that I made of a ALP-44 Consist pulling into the Little Silver Station.

 

 

Enjoy,

Awesome! Simply awesome. I was supposed to be there yesterday but I couldn't make it.

 

I see you caught x233 again. I want to catch that train myself. Maybe next time.

 

The F40s are harder to photograph on the NJCL.

Great pics again Eric. Did you get any pics of the actual placement of the track sections?

 

 

I did get a photo of one of the track sections laying next to the crossing after they were unloaded.
