Attention Focuses Away From Aberdeen-Matawan for MOM Line

It looks unlikely that the Aberdeen-Matawan train station will serve as a hub for the Monmouth-Ocean-Middlesex (MOM) rail line, based on my reading of an Asbury Park Press article in Saturday's paper. The momentum is for this new train line, which will originate in Lakehurst, to attract customers from Ocean and western Monmouth counties who are currently driving the Route 9 corridor. Red Bank doesn't want the line because it would cause only more traffic congestion. And I'm pretty sure, even though APP offered no discussion of it, Aberdeen and Matawan residents would prefer that the line went elsewhere for the same reason. So all eyes are on two variations of the Monmouth Junction solution, with connections to either South Brunswick and the Northeast Corridor Line or South Amboy and the North Jersey Coast Line.
