NS's Lehigh Line Royce Running Track Being Upgraded

(Train sightings on 10-26-13.)

NS 212 passes by the unassembled signal that will be used to control westbound movements on NS’s LEHL and Royce Running track on October 26, 2013. This signal is located adjacent to the Roycefield Road grade crossing in Hillsborough (NJ). A second signal for controlling eastbound movements is located at the west end of the Royce Runner where it joins the mainline. NS has also upgraded the Royce siding with welded rail and dumping fresh ballast where needed over the past few months. Currently though there is no information as to what the timeline is for this project to become fully operational.
