Raritan Central Railway

Recommended Posts

The Raritan Central Railway is a railroad that operates in a business park in Edison NJ, I was in the area so I decided to stop by and photograph a little. Here are some shots, the crews were very friendly and did not mind chatting a bit about each engines history as well as any other questions I had.

Neat find!

 

What is that B creature? It remotely reminds me of the BL20GH...

The GE B23-7 is an older 4 axle GE, it was to go head to head with the EMD GP series. I like the Raritan Central as most short lines don't use GE's(since older units are generally regarded throughout the industry as crap) so their sort of unique.

 

I hope thats the units your talking about haha. The GP10's as the photos state are ex-Conrail. I was hoping the blue unit would be there when I showed. They have another one in Red. But the Blue is always better:).

Interesting! Funny how now EMD & GE are equal in market presence and fit all most every possible market niche from pax to freight to work & historical excursion backup power etc.

 

Shame ALCO & baldwin had to be casualties of the loco wars though. :cry:

Very nice photos there. The 7579 is ny favorite. Does any one have any youtube footage? How far from NYC is this railroad?:P

 

Edison is about 25 miles from manhattan, about 10 from staten island.
