I like to see Six Flags Great Adventure have partnership with NJ Transit to use rail line to Six Flags Great Adventure in the future, the passengers shall take the train from New York Penn Station or Philadelphia to Six Flags Great Adventure for busy weekends and weekdays (only summer season), sometimes in the summertime, the passengers used train trip to the park for Hurricane Harbor. what line will take from Philly / NYC to Six Flags Great Adventure, this train line would be busy like events: Holiday in the Park, concerts, Fright Fest, etc...

the rail line will called Six Flags Express Line, here is the stations for SF Express Line:

New York Penn Station

Newark Penn Station

Metropark

Trenton
Philadelphia

Cherry Hill

Mt. Laurel

Springfield

Jackson (Six Flags Great Adventure) (located near by the parking lot at Great Adventure)

So what are you think guys? The trains will be ALP-45 (electric/diesel mode) with double decker cars.

That would teach a lot of traffic problems go away, the trains are easy than cars or buses.

During Christmas time (November to December), Santa Claus will make special appearance on train trip to Six Flags Great Adventure for Holiday in the Park.

Sometimes Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck make meet & greets to the passengers to say hi during the train trip to SFGadv.

What are you think Harry, guys?

It could never be a direct route off the Northeast Corridor, it's too far from GA. It would have to be a loop from GA to Hamilton Station, which means if your coming from NYC, you have to get off in Hamilton and then board another train to GA. This would never happen, too much money for one stop. Nickelodeon Universe and DreamWorks Water Park will have there own existing station from NJ Transit, but will still be quite a walk. Those two Parks will be open 365 Days a year, Hurricane Harbor is only open 100 days a year, GA is open about 190 days a year and both have to close in bad weather.

They would also have to build a railroad line to connect to the park that would connect to the Northeast Corridor or to the North Jersey Coast Line via the old Blue Comet line in Lakehurst which is actually being rebuilt to serve a sand pit in Chatsworth. Where the NJ Coast Line ends in Point Pleasant Beach is a bit too far and out of the way to extend the line to Jackson and even Toms River and would require demolishing many homes and businesses. There's also a Conrail line along Route 537 that ends in Mt. Holly that could be extended up to Great Adventure but the already existing portion would need to be rebuilt to accommodate high speed trains. I don't expect NJ Transit to do something like this because it could struggle to attract passengers similarly to their Atlantic City services and wouldn't be able to operate year round.

Well, NJ Transit would actually uses their another plan to use new rail lines from Hamilton to Great Adventure, and Bay Head to Jackson.

There was more plans for NJ Transit's rail lines for future like Jamesburg to Lakehurst, Matawan to Toms River, and more.

Unless they put a dome over HH and GA they will never do it. Amtrack, NJ Transit and MTA can't even come up with enough money for a Tunnel, there's no way NJ Transit has enough money for this. Also alot of Land is Restricted due to Fort Dix and Earle. Residents Stopped a Highway connecting exit 8a to Princeton, where all the land was already owned by NJTPA and No Taxes were going to be used, you really think there going to allow a train in there yard paid for by Taxes.

NJ Transit is a joke, upper management couldn't even plan a kid's birthday party. It's a political patronage pit.

Like During Hurricane Sandy, "hey all the other Railroads are moving there Equipment to high ground, should we move ours out of the swamp"  "No, they'll be fine" and nobody got fired over it.

 

Two Weeks before the Super Bowl in the Meadowlands, I was told Christie is setting up NJ Transit to Fail, so he could fire the ED and put Hakim in Charge. The Democrats never went after him for it, they had more evidence then Rampgate. The Reason, NJ would never host another Sports Championship Again if the truth came out.

NJ Transit closed the entire Atlantic City Line for the rest of the year yesterday so they can add positive train control on all the trains which is mandatory by the end of the year. Some believe they may close the line permanently which will badly affect AC tourism and casino workers that rely on taking the train to work. They also removed Raritan Valley line trains to NYC because of positive train control as well forcing commuters to transfer to another train in Newark or Secaucus or take a ferry in Hoboken.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

 

You're kidding, right?  They're running 40 year old rolling stock and can't keep their engines in service as it is.  Their conductors can barely open the doors on the trains they've been running for years. They've been fighting over a Trans-Hudson tunnel for over a decade. And you want a spur line ust for the park?  You're kidding, right?  It's bad enough my monthly fare (with which I could buy and insure a luxury car) subsidizes the shitty less-popular lines already, the thought of it running a special line for GA is ridiculous.
