Conrail track gang hi-wheeler at the Prospect Ave crossing, lifting wheels up. Piscataway, NJ. August 2010. Although this 2 track mainline is no longer technically Conrail, this is referred to as the Conrail Division of the joint Norfolk Southern - CSX operations.  Many of the track gang still cal lit Conrail.  This shows how the truck travels on the rails.  The modern equipment of the 2020 era has a hi-wheel pick up truck with Loram equipment to detect track defects.  How the rail scene has changed over the decades!
