H02 will also work down to Totowa, NJ on the Totowa Industrial track which is the old Greenwood Lake Branch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcHNvst8ECg

This would be a possible route if this were to become a reality. SMART Lehigh Valley

ns wont let it happen

Dan They don't need NS to let it happen along the Lehigh Line we have abandoned Row still of the CNJ with the use of having their own dedicated track which NS could also use in some parts, the "Smart" could use flyovers to actually go over the Lehigh Line similar to the Hudson Bergen Light Rail people said that wouldn't happen but it did thanks to being separated from freight.

ns would haft build a new bridge from easton to phillipsburg then a new line to bloomsbury ns was going to build a new bridge & put the leigh line back in but it would cost to much

Through the Railfan network pipeline freight is on an increase starting next year NS should be running some road trains down the Port Jervis Line signaling has been getting upgraded along the Southern Tier to support this, what this means should ease some traffic on the Lehigh Line. Maybe the wish list for passenger travel to and from Allentown to NYC could become a reality. CSAO already shares access with NJT from Newark / Valley Junction to Aldene.
