NJ Railroads


Known railroads and their operations for New Jersey are listed here. Subdivisions that cross state lines will only contain information and GPS ranges to approximately the state line to prevent unnecessary overlap.

Due to operational changes, mergers and general changes, some railroad radio channels may be reused by the same or adjacent railroads. However, if using RadioReference aware scanners or software, you can reduce seeing or duplicating this information by scanning just the subdivisions or locations that you are interested in.

Railroads are listed by size starting with the largest and ending with historical/tourist operations and in alphabetical order.

Passenger operations can be heard on the respective railroad they are operating on unless passenger stations have specific radio assignments.

Short alpha names are comprised of the railroads AAR reporting mark, AAR channel number and subdivision or major use function. The description field will contain actual use or location information to provide the best possible information for various scanners, users and readability.

Traveling system gangs (Maintenance of Way) will use the area road channel for track authority and for the foreman to grant trains through the work limits. These gangs will typically use their own channels - and such channels should not be submitted to the database as they are only temporary for the area. Signal, communications and other engineering groups will typically only be on the road channel, but may use any other as needs warrant.

Where a railroad or a subdivision lists both a "Dispatcher" and "Road" channel, both should be monitored. Most defect detectors and operations will occur on the road channel

In former Conrail areas, the old common Conrail channels may be reused by both CSXT and NS. CSXT Identifies this as the following channel numbers:

Channel 1 - AAR 046 - 160.800 Channel 2 - AAR 064 - 161.070 Channel 3 - AAR 050 - 160.860 Channel 4 - AAR 058 - 160.980

Conrail (more recently known as Consolidated Rail Corporation or Conrail Shared Assets) is now a switching and terminal railroad owned jointly by CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern following the split of Conrail. Conrail switches for NS and CSX in Northern New Jersey, Southern New Jersey/Philadelphia, Detroit, and Staten Island, New York
