Hello, Thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.
Just conducted a news search online for when the Coast Line should be up and running. The Associated Press ran a story on Nov 12 (Monday) and they report that Transit executive director James Weinstein tells The Associated Press that the North Jersey Coast Line could resume limited service between Long Branch and New York City within seven to 10 days.
Repair could conclude by the end of this week and service could be restored after that from Long Branch.
And here are some options just released on NJ Transit: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/more_options_for_nj_transit_co.html
I'm truly not understanding the way things are being run. Is it possible to just find out what is running from Newark Penn Station to South Amboy, NJ
