||Pressed Into Passenger
||As NJ Transit struggles to comply with the federally mandated Positive Train Control requirements many cab cars have become unavailable as they are retrofitted with the new PTC systems. In order to maintain service locomotives have been acting as "cab cars" on the east ends of train all across the system. Sometimes those engines used are those normally reserved for non-revenue work trains such as seen here. Eastbound Train #1204 is seen here just after crossing the Hackensack River at Upper Hack drawbridge and was lead by one of four GP40-2s on the NJ Transit roster. These engines are usually assigned as work and protect power to outlying terminals such as Dover, Long Branch and Morrisville and have rarely been used to power scheduled revenue passenger trains.
