Hello Guru,
When do you think those ALP-45DP's are going into service on the Raritan Valley and North Jersey Coast Lines?

Here's one for you: I was waiting at the train station in Orange and studying the schedules to see when I could get trains to NYC. I got to wondering whether it would ever make sense to go backward to catch the next train. It turns out it is. One example would be you take the 8:20 westbound out of Orange and catch either the 8:22 (if it's running late, which is often is) or the 8:36 eastbound out of South Orange.

So what's the furthest it ever makes sense to go the wrong way to catch a train, anywhere in the system?

That's along the NJT Raritan Valley Line.

You can take it to Newark Penn Station and then catch the PATH to Jersey City (you'll have to make another transfer at Grove Street if you work at Pavonia/Newport)

Here's the schedule: http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/rail/R0060.pdf

The closest station to you is Annandale, but you don't have a whole lot of options for trains there. If you drive to Raritan, you have more options.

The fare is $291 per month from Raritan or $308 from Annandale. The PATH fare is $65 per month (technically, you can avoid this by taking the #1 bus from Newark to Jersey City for free because you have the rail pass, but it probably takes too long to be worth it).

I'd just like to add that there are a few North Jersey Coast Line trains that run into Hoboken, and your rail pass would be valid on them: http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/rail/R0080.pdf

From Hoboken, you can catch the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail into Jersey City.
