Passaic-Bergen Rail Line

Passaic-Bergen Rail Line

The Passaic-Bergen Passenger Rail Project is a dormant project by New Jersey Transit (NJT) to reintroduce passenger service on a portion of the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway (NYSW) right-of-way in Passaic and Bergen counties. Plans call for service to run from Hawthorne south to Paterson, then east to Hackensack using newly built, FRA-compliant diesel multiple unit rail cars. When announced in the mid-2000s NJT stated construction could begin in early 2009 and last approximately 3 years and estimated the cost of the project to be $156 million. In a memorandum of understanding NJT agreed to pay NYSW more than $20 million dollars for a 75-year easement for trackage rights on its freight line.

Famous quotes containing the words line and/or rail:

    I fear I agree with your friend in not liking all sermons. Some of them, one has to confess, are rubbish: but then I release my attention from the preacher, and go ahead in any line of thought he may have started: and his after-eloquence acts as a kind of accompaniment—like music while one is reading poetry, which often, to me, adds to the effect.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    In my conscience I believe the baggage loves me, for she never speaks well of me herself, nor suffers any body else to rail at me.
    William Congreve (1670–1729)
