NJT's Atlantic City line began life as an Amtrak service in May 1989 which beefed up former Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines trackage between Philadelphia and Atlantic City.
NJT service begins on 30th Street Station's lower level, with the locomotive of the diesel consist usually on the Philadelphia end. A station is being built just off the Delair Bridge adjacent to Derousse Avenue, Cherry Hill, where the Atlantic City Line crosses the New Jersey Transit RiverLine, a diesel light rail line between Camden and Trenton. Shortly after leaving the Jersey side of the bridge, the trains cross a few Conrail branches and a couple of busy highways (Westfield Avenue is crossed at grade) before ducking into a single-track cut which turns to the south. Out of Cherry Hill, the trains vault over Route 70 and return to grade, with a grade crossing just inside Cooper River Park, then duck back into a cut through the town of Westmont. At Lindenwold, the NJT station is next to the station of the PATCO High-Speed Line, although PATCO's is on embankment. Leaving Lindenwold, the line becomes laced with grade crossings as it runs in a median area between two parallel roads for a short distance.
The line straightens out and appears to leave civilization for a while as it zips through the Jersey Pinelands. Trains leave the pines and development becomes plentiful again, and the track rises onto an embankment just before Absecon station comes into view. Trains cross a swing bridge over what locals call the "Thoroughfare" and immediately enter the Atlantic City station interlocking.
Train operation may get a little more complicated as a highway connection known locally as "the tunnel", linking the Atlantic City Expressway with the city's Marina District to the north, will likely cut across the terminal lead trackage at grade. Stations along the line are high-level, standard NJT-issue affairs with bus stop-type shelters in addition to the machines. 30th Street Station, Zoo Interlocking Area, Delair Bridge, Pennsauken Transit Center, Westfield Avenue Grade Crossing, Pennsauken, Cherry Hill, Lindenwold, Washington Ave.
Before that, PRSL service, which had been cut back to the PATCO terminus in Lindenwold, ended in 1982 due to low ridership and poor track. Several communities along the line fought the so-called "Gamblers Express" service with its many grade crossings that were seen as a safety threat. Although train length has varied, the standard train seems to be three coaches, with one generally not available to riders unless crowds dictate otherwise. Transfers can be made here to all lines of the SEPTA Regional Rail, the SEPTA Market-Frankford Elevated and the SEPTA Subway-Surface Streetcar Lines.


The line turns to the east slightly and joins the PATCO right-of-way as it drops into its own cut to traverse Haddonfield. This area is sufficiently busy with traffic that train speeds are kept lower than they could be. Egg Harbor station seems to appear out of the pines, and once the stop is cleared, the trains seemingly re-enter the woods.
The station is on this embankment and requires an elevator for access for those who cannot climb the stairs (other stations can be accessed by zig-zag ramps as well as short stairways). The Atlantic City terminal is a 5-track, 3-platform affair next to the city's new convention center.
Trains leave 30th Street and follow Amtrak trackage through Zoo Junction and onto the Northeast Corridor through North Philadelphia.
Some trains are scheduled to turn back at Cherry Hill at certain times, so there may a train laying over at this location occasionally. The railroad track is in a deeper cut, with the PATCO station barely visible from NJT trains.
Once out of this area, trains open up for a short distance, then enters an embankment before reaching Atco station. Another passing siding at Pomo, about five miles past Egg Harbor, is another place to expect a meet, depending on schedules. Absecon is the last station on the mainland, so to speak - it is a little-known fact that Atlantic City, as most of its Jersey coast resort towns, is on a barrier island. The famous Boardwalk, as well as the old Convention Center (famous for Miss America), are over a half-mile to the east and require a healthy walk or a jitney ride from the train station. Basic service is 12-14 trains per day each way on no set schedule pattern, as the single track and availability of 30th Street platforms and Delair bridge windows seem to dictate when trains can run. NJT commuter service began to operate between Lindenwold and Atlantic City in September 1989, with some service to 30th Street Station in Philadelphia beginning in May 1993. Trains continue parallel to PATCO on to Lindenwold, varying from the cut in Haddonfield to surface to embankment east of Woodcrest, back to grade just before entering Lindenwold. PATCO's yard and shop are to the north of the trains (to the left of outbounds, as we are travelling). Hammonton has several grade crossings and the line runs through the heart of the town, necessitating another slow run.


The siding is close to Pomona, the location of Atlantic City International Airport and a federal aviation test center.
The track continues on its embankment through the marshland, with the towers of Atlantic City coming into view.
Although there are conductors on board trains, their responsibilities are to check, not punch, tickets - ticket validators are also placed at each station to be used for just that purpose. At one time, moves were allegedly timed to allow consists to provide "Diesel Express" runs on NJT's Trenton line, but this appears unlikely since the Trenton trains generally require more than three cars.
Trains move to the south side of the Corridor and exit it at Frankford Junction, where they begin their climbs up the massive Delair lift bridge across the Delaware River and enter New Jersey. Hammonton's PRSL station building still stands and can be seen just before the new station is reached. At various times, the possibility of an intermodal station here has been discussed but nothing has materialized so far. The single track becomes two about two miles from Absecon and remains that way into the last stop. Train tickets are honored between Lindenwold and Atlantic City on NJT's Route 554 bus, which operates hourly on the White Horse Pike (Route 30).
Trains use the northern track only, with Conrail freights on the southern track on the structure.
The lot usually did not get much use, save for the annual New Jersey State Fair at the Track which used a large portion of the main parking lot and necessitated use of the auxiliary one.
The siding still connects with PATCO's yard trackage and is PATCO's connection to the outside rail world. The busy Atlantic City Expressway, with its median parking areas for casino employees, is just to the south of the trains.
