Question regarding Intermodals on CSX's Trenton Line
Author: Pattenburg

Was down in Belle Mead, NJ on Saturday and photographed CSX's Q032 as it passed by the former Reading depot. That got me thinking that the only intermodals I have seen on this line have been east / north bound trains. Therefore my question is does CSX run any west / south bound intermodals over the Trenton Line? Thanks for any information regarding my question.

So NICK,
Do they run in cover of darkness or is there another reason Pattenburg doesn't see them?

Pattenburg,
Always nice to see trains in the snow, even though I'm tired of seeing and shovelling snow! At 75 years of age, I'm blessed to have a son, still renting at home, to help out with that.
 Thanks for the posts of the decrepit Reading Station. It looked a lot better in historic old photos. But then again the Reading and or Conrail dropped passenger service about 50 years ago. Back then I had a friend, outside of railroad interests, auto racing, who in fact was by coincidence, a postman who delivered to our house at the time, was a student in a university. He graduated and said that he could take the Reading West Trenton Line to New York and his Wall Street job and it was only a little slower than taking Septa to Trenton and cross platform to NJT and was a lot cheaper. Those were the days! I should have spent more time riding the remaining trains. Alas, young and dumb!

Back in the 1970s, I would occasionally take the Reading train from Newark to Reading Terminal Philadelphia.  By West Trenton, the two RDCs were mostly empty.

My recollection is that these Reading trains just made 2-3 stops to Manville, and then all stops to W Trenton.
