Here's a photo of some NJT M.O.W. equipment redoing the grade crossing at
Arnold Avenue in Point Pleasant Beach.  This is an interesting story.
The grade crossing was to be closed for about a week.  Orginally, NJT
wanted to do this work in April, 1997.  When local merchants
and politicians heard of this, they immediately put forth efforts to
postpone this work until October, when "tourist season" would be over.
Under pressure, NJT did agree to postpone the work until October.
Ironically, April was cold and rainy, and the tourists did not come as
expected.  However, October was warm and sunny.  I guess NJT got the last
laugh!  This is October 1997.
