NJ Transit’s AquaTrack hits the rails for leaf clearing
The AquaTrack system has been in use by NJ Transit since October 2003. It consists of two 250-horsepower diesel-engine units mounted on a flat car with an operator control cab. The equipment is a high-pressure power-washing system, which removes leaves and oily residue from the tracks in an effort to prevent train delays caused by ‘slippery rail’ conditions.
