New NJ Transit Photos from Red Bank and Little Silver

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

 

Here are some new Photos that I took in Little Silver and Red Bank Yesterday and a little surprise in Red Bank.

 

Here are the photos from Little Silver first where prep work is being done for October 3rd when the Oceanport Ave. Crossing in Little Silver is being Redone.

Now for the Surprise. CSX GP38-2 #2724 was in Red Bank Yard waiting to take its freight train the WPSA31 back to Sayreville NJ. This freight train is very hard to photograph as the times are never consistant.

Excellent pictures Eric! especially of the MOW equipment. I noticed the 8 and 10 markers on the cantenary lines in picture 1. Is that where the 8 and 10 car trains stop at? If so they would be stopping right on top of the crossing.

The reason for the car numbers are in fact to tell the trains where to stop. The reason is so the trains can clear the crossings north and south of the station depending on the direction of the trains movement. There is also a number 6 on the Catenary as well.

Yes those markers are basically the same as in the NYC Subway and other transit systems.

 

The MoW photos are sweet. I have yet to catch any of that in my recent visits to NJ Transit country.
