Thank you Dan, I love the NYSW RR but have recently heard they are in trouble because more of customers they served are going out of business.

What are you telling me Dan, that is bad news about the M&E.. The M&E still switches for the Bayway Terminal in Linden besides the other NJ businesses they still serve. I really don't know what to say about the Black River & Western too, seems to be falling apart if it wasn't for the passenger tourist train they would be gone. I just rode on the train from Flemington to Ringoes 2 months ago for a special 10 bucks a person, round trip train ride. On the Flemington to Ringoes line I saw no more freight customers have closed up shop. A few years ago the lumber yard and I think a plastics factory had a couple of freight cars up to the loading dock. Just two months ago those sidings were gone.

Another note the M&Ms factory in Hackettstown is closed their railroading siding had weeds 10 feet tall are growing up. Whats going on is all business in NJ drying up of what little had left?
