This short spur (0.10 miles) once served the Asbury Park Press in Bradley Beach, NJ. The plant was located across Memorial Drive from New Jersey Transit's North Jersey Coast Line; the spur crossed Memorial Drive to reach the press. They accepted 1 to 2 boxcars a week, delivered by Conrail. To accommodate empty boxcars that were not immediately needed, a small yard adjacent to the North Jersey Coast Line was built and maintained by Conrail.
Asbury Park Press relocated to Freehold, NJ, in the early 1990s, prompting Conrail to abandoned the spur. Its crossing with Memorial Drive was soon paved over.
There is some evidence of the spur remaining today. The rails adjacent to Memorial Drive are still there, along with the paved-over grade crossing and the railroad crossing pavement markings on Memorial Drive. In addition, the small yard is still in use — NJ Transit stores maintenance-of-way cars there temporarily when track work is being performed in the area.
