Delair, NJ Bridge Question
Author: CSXT_8437

Good Evening:

How many trains per day does CSXT and NS operate over the Delair Bridge into Camden and what are the symbols? What are the best times to see trains in this area?

Thank you in advance.

FYI the north track is NJTs the south track is Conrails. The bridge is operated by Conrail.

i'm quite sure the Deepwater coal fired plant converted to natural gas years ago. so those trains do not operate.

do the Beesleys Point coal trains use this bridge as well? For at least a few more months...

you're very misinformed ... 506 coal trains run to Connectiv Atlantic power plant inside the Dupont facility ... the facility you're referring to is the old Atlantic Electric now Calpine power plant just south of the Delaware Memorial Bridges

Well maybe so. I was thinking of Atlantic Electric plant. In Conrail days I never remember us running unit trains to the plant you mention. It was blocks in regular trains. Is this something that developed since the Conrail takeover? Funny thing is I listen to Wilmington railfan radio most of the day, and it reaches to Deepwater because i hear CA-11 getting its track warrant to go north about mid-morning. But I've never heard a 506/507 train symbol.

506/507 are nocturnal with some daylight exceptions as the other week ... the Connectiv plant is about 10 years or so old
