NJ TRANSIT's Aqua Track -- on the frontlines battling slippery rail conditions

Slippery rail conditions are caused by autumn's falling leaves, affecting all Northeast railroads. When falling leaves are crushed by train wheels, decaying leaf materials create an oily residue that coats the rails. It results in poor traction for trains and resulting train delays

Aqua Track employs two pressure-pump units operating with up to 20,000 pounds-per-square-inch at 17 gallons of water per minute. Aqua Track works around the clock to keep tracks free of fallen leaves and residue from early October through mid-December.
