Raritan River Railroad

Raritan River Railroad

The Raritan River Rail Road (RRRR) was a twelve-mile (19 km) shortline railroad founded in 1888 and based in South Amboy, New Jersey, U.S., which ran as far as New Brunswick, New Jersey. It served both passengers and freight in its heyday and operated profitably throughout much of its existence. The RRRR was absorbed into Conrail in 1980, becoming a branch line of Conrail's system.

The line is now operated by Conrail under the CSX/NS Shared Assets arrangement, and has about six customers. It presently terminates at U.S. Route 1 in North Brunswick, New Jersey, near New Brunswick.

Famous quotes containing the word railroad:

    People who make puns are like wanton boys that put coppers on the railroad tracks. They amuse themselves and other children, but their little trick may upset a freight train of conversation for the sake of a battered witticism.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)
