Bernardsville Station: Boarding Changes due to Slippery Rail Conditions - Autumn 2018
Falling leaves and wet weather conditions during the autumn months have the potential to cause “slippery rail” conditions when fallen leaves are crushed by train wheels. The crushed material becomes pectin, an oily residue that can make it difficult for trains to gain or maintain traction, maintain proper speeds or climb steep grades.
Effective Monday, October 15, customers boarding the following New York-bound trains departing from Bernardsville Station should board from the west end of the inbound platform.
NJ TRANSIT will continue this procedure through the end of November.
We appreciate your understanding as we work to mitigate the effects of slippery rail.
