I was coming home from Newark, yesterday, 4/4 up Rt. 23 near Oak Ridge reservoir. There was a NSYW utility truck followed by what appeared to be speeder car (MOW) with several guys on it. Of course, it was a little of a surprise, so I wasn't able to snap a picture doing 55+ MPH.
 
Has there been any freight activity on that portion to warrant inspection or MOW work?

The SU99/100 runs to the northern division and local traffic keeps the rails shiny.

Thanks! Glad to hear that.
I don't get down that way too much any more, so wasn't sure if the rails have been kept shiny. Used to go down Rt.23 everyday to Rochelle Park but now travel NYS Thruway to work in Suffern.

That line has been in regular use since the late 80's, when then-NYS&W owner Delaware Otsego rebuilt it over Sparta Mountain.
