WOW that unit looks really good. Is it the BRWs or was it being painted for someone? That would be cool to see on the trains
 
Joe, in your last picture, were  is 752 going? Or has she stopped moving. I also see the caboose train next to her

I was at the BR&W on Saturday. Though not impressed, it was still fun, because I had never been here before.

Here, 8159 is just returning from her days' work in Three Bridges.

Before bed, she slowly moves a caboose back into the siding.

Sounding her bell, 752 pulls into Ringoes with the afternoon train from Flemington.

After running around her train down in the weed-infested siding, she pulled back up to the station reboard the passengers.

Last one. Though I had fun, I was still dissappointed in the RR. They had so much more potential, and the BRRHT can only do so much. It's good they're still running passenger trains, but things need to get painted and repaired. Nobody wants to ride in a rusty/run-down coach, do they?
 
Enjoy yourselves,

I have a question, does anyone know why the moved the station in Flemington up to where it is at now from where it was in the 1980's?  I would assume that it is cheaper to run, less track to maintain, but with all the traffic, foot and vehicle, I would think it would be better a little farther back.  On the plus side it is closer for people to see and the little kids want to ride it.  Any input?

I thought that the BRW sold all that track leading to the other station.

I agree with you 100%.
 
My guess is that the current location of the station is closer to the main road, having the public see the station.  I've always thought it was a bad idea on their part (heck, theres always poor ideas over there anyway).  I don't think they'll ever learn...
 
Ringoes still looks like a dump hole, when they will ever realize it, I don't know.

I have always thought that it was so the station was closer to Liberty Village Outlets, as to weather or not the Railroad still owns that section of right of way, is unknown. There are lots of weeds near that old station now, so I would not be surprised to learn that it was taken out of service for that reason

You would think that they would invest in a few gallons of "round-up" or something like that and spray once a month so the station does not look like it is abandoned.  If you really thing about it the general public sees a lot of train tracks that our OOS.  I used to live in Ocean County and most of the tracks out that way are overgrown with weeds and brush and you just about never see a train on it.  So if you rode by there and looked at it you would think the same or it is a rail road grave yard.  I really wish I still lived there because I would go up and help cut the brush back that would hit the cars and with other little things.  If they were to fix the station up some to make it look like passenger trains do exist then maybe people would ride more.  The first impression of the station is what paints the picture in the peoples mind.  I am not saying to pave the parking lot and make it look like a NJ Tranist station, but spray the weeds at least and clean up a little.

Sorry but forgot to add, the equipment would stay in better shape too.  You can see the "Brush finish" on the coaches in the pictures, and most of them have brush about touching the equipment as it goes by.

Joe,
 
Great pictures! I noticed M-55 was outside with the coaches. What is in the shed where she uses to be?
 
And Guys, There is an another station? Where it is? I would assume it is where it is now for what was already said about the Road and people seeing it
 I think the mall would have something to with it was well

Hulka, you lost me there, what station are we talking about that has that needs "Round Up"? The current Flemington station looks fine to me, although they could ballast a bit more on the main track. If you are talking about the old flemington station, well yes that is over grown, possibly up to your knees. But I don't even know if the RR still owns the Right Of Way anymore and I really don't think they own the station anymore.  
 
Anthony, I can't respond to your first question because I have only seen the Delaware Turtle in the shed once during RR days, lately I have seen the Turtle on the Track next to the Platform. Looking towards tree bridges from the flemington station the main line leads off on a switch to Tree Bridges, however the track that you would be on if the train continued strait used to go on farther than it does and it used to lead to the "Old Station"(PRR). There is another station in Flemington that was built by the CNJ, it spend many years as restaurant, it has been restored and is now a Unity Bank.

Im going to the railroad this sunday and Im bringing the best weed killer that is available.  On another note they did trim a few of the bigger bushes that actually came in through the windows. There are a few more spots on the main to be trimmed, but how about a group of us meet in a week or two and I will set up a train to cut weeds along the line and in Ringoes and Flemington?
 
If anyone is interested in weed trimming, send me a email (jmbrwandmthrcool@aol.com) and tell me. Then I will talk to Kean and see when we can do this.

A "dump hole" is a polite description of the place.  There is no way they can attract riders on a regular basis with the place looking that way, no matter what the Trust does.  The railroad expects the trust to do just about everything with extremely limited resources.  It's a joke.
