NJ Transit’s Gladstone Line Begins Service Today

New Jersey Transit’s Gladstone line will resume limited service on Monday bringing all lines damaged by superstorm Sandy back online.

The Gladstone Branch of the Morris & Essex Line will  operate between Gladstone and Hoboken, as well as between Gladstone and New York on an alternate schedule until further notice.

“This is a major milestone reached in our state’s continuing, post-Sandy recovery.  With the restoration of service on the Gladstone Branch, every one of our rail lines is now offering either limited or full service to our customers,” said Transportation Commissioner and NJ Transit Board Chairman James Simpson.

Sandy took out  five catenary – overhead wire – poles during the storm.  The poles, which exceed 90 feet in length, are custom-made.  These poles were installed late last week, and more than five miles of overhead wiring was installed along the length of the Gladstone Branch this week.

Additionally, crews removed the 49 trees that were on the tracks, and have repaired the line’s infrastructure, such as signals and switches.
