Aberdeen-Matawan Station Minitrip


Recommended Posts

I went to Aberdeen-Matawan station today for my first railfanning trip. I had an absolute blast in the two hours I was there.

 

I saw 3 trains: 2 coming from Newark and 1 going towards Newark.

 

I took a total of 78 photos but I will post my favorites here.

 

Resized to 1024x768 for those of you still on Dial-Up :njc:

Wonderful shots!

 

Thanks!

 

Nice!

 

How frequently do solid sets of Comet V's run? Last year, most trains had a Comet V cab car and a mix of Comet I-IV trailers.

 

Dunno but thanks for the reply!

 

Great pics there! Glad that you are enjoying the tri-state area!

 

So far so good here in New Jersey :P

How often do you go there? If you see me be sure to say hi, you are bound to see me around since it is my local station.

My home station! The worst station on the entire NJCL...(who builds a station on a !@#$%^ curve)nice shots btw! To answer the question about solid V sets. There is one right now lead by ALP46 4627.

 

Just a tip becareful fanning at Matawan as there are some nut case commuters who have called me in before. Also there are better spots on the Coastline.

I tried to avoid people anyways.

 

That guy I have a photo of (conductor?) was nice though. The doors opened and he stepped out. He kindly commented "Railfanning, huh?" and I replied with a yes. I asked him how things were going on the line today and he said good.

 

I said bye and the doors closed :P

Like every Friday, I go there and catch the 5:45 train (which is an Arrow) and take it to Rahway to a NEC train Metuchen.

 

I'm not doing it this Friday cuz of Spring break.
