Alternative's to GCL Desiel Light Rail Line

         Still very much Pro GCL Light Train Project, BUT there are more favorable Alternatives to the DVPA proposal  as presented. Given the track record and the history of this  project in Southern New Jersey, it may well be just another Pork Barrel  and Patronage Sandwich being served by DRPA and NJ Transit. The status of this project is like information leaking out of a Black Hole.....If you relay on NJ.Com and The Courier Post  for any real insight, your in for a long wait. These are Corporate Entities who rely on maintaining favorable standing with all the other Corporate Entities. 

       The REAL NEWS on just about anything is on Social Media. Save The Newspapers for he bottom of your bird cage if you have one.


The Two alternative's to Diesel : 

1. Electrification: 





















2. Hydrogen Fuel 

     Hydrogen fuel cells used in the hydrail system convert chemical energy to electrical energy by combining hydrogen and oxygen – electricity, heat and water are the by-products. 


     While having the major benefit of zero-emissions, this locomotive had an extremely positive response from train engineers due to their lack of diesel noise, vibration, and exhaust


There are two approaches to this alternative known as third rail


1. Electrical power is supplied to the engine thru a charge from overhead rails.

2. A third ground rail in addition to the existing parallel tracks  to carry a charge to the Engine Train.

3. Duel Diesel  Electricfied Third Rail


Wonder why we don't see these trains down here ???



Development and Procurement of the ALP-45DP Dual-Powered Locomotive


        The ALP-45DP is a first-of-a-kind locomotive in North America that offers NJ TRANSIT in New Jersey and Agence Métropolitaine de Transport (AMT) in Montreal the opportunity to change the way thousands of commuters use mass transportation every day. By being able to run on either diesel power or overhead catenary electric power, this locomotive offers more flexibility and operational efficiency than its predecessors.

STV provided design, inspection, testing and other engineering support services for the procurement of 35 dual-powered locomotives for NJ TRANSIT and 20 locomotives for AMT. The locomotive, debuted first in New Jersey, can achieve speeds as high as 100 miles per hour in diesel mode and 125 miles per hour in electric mode while producing less noise and exhaust than its predecessors.

But, you ask how do those KOCH BRO'S and their Spider Web of Proxy Warriors fit in  all this  ?




Through its subsidiaries Koch operates refineries in Alaska, Minnesota and Texas, with a combined crude oil processing capacity of more than 800,000 barrels per day. Koch Industries owns or operates about 4,000 miles of pipelines that transport crude oil, refined petroleum products, natural gas liquids and chemicals. Koch Minerals and its affiliates are among the world’s largest dry-bulk commodity handlers, marketing and trading more than 40 million tons of coal, coke, cement and other related products annually. Flint Hills Resources produces about 9 billion pounds of building-block chemicals per year. Koch is a leading producer of paving and roofing asphalt.

DON'T GET COMFORTABLE....It's a web that is entwined in every aspect of your everyday existence: YOU CAN'T SWING A DEAD CAT BY THE TAIL WITHOUT HITTING KOCH INDUSTRIES  .

How does South Jersey and Gloucester County stack up against Third World Countries and the rest of the World ?
