Re: PRR Amboy Secondary Questions.

I explored the NJLB quite a bit in 1992 when work took me to the area. The catenary was still in the whole way and looked in perfect shape. This was before internet/google maps mind you, so I didn't know where I was. Well, I ended up in the coal yards at South Amboy where the coal classification was...

Abandoned Spur in Lyndhurst NJ at Kingston Station

What's the history on the abandoned line that starts at the Kingston, NJ (ex-Erie) NJT station and goes south to Harrison, NJ? Looks like it was 2 tracks. Part of it still goes thru the paved pax platform at Kingston Sta.

Re: High Bridge Branch - Toys R Us warehouse

You are correct, the siding is covered in gravel stone and has a bunch of trailers parked ontop of it. Also it's actually a DOUBLE siding. There are 2 sets of tracks along the warehouse. Also the track to the East of the HB branch that I think went south to Chester has 2 warehouses after the end of ...

High Bridge Branch - Toys R Us warehouse

I dont know if the TRU warehouse wil ever get service again, but the google maps satelite view shows the spur that runs along the warehouse has been paved over. I guess the building will never get rail service again. Anyone know who uses the building now and if ME has ever tried getting them on as a...

Re: Complaints about tracks signs? Millstone branch.

Interesting point. I cannot see a utility using it as the track stub ends at Clyde Rd. Interestingly, CR only bought the row up to Clyde Rd. Over the years, Penn Central sold the rest of the row from Clyde out to the millstone river. Most was purchased by home owners whose property butted up against...

Re: Complaints about tracks signs? Millstone branch.

I think CRSA embargoed the line west of Rt 27. From 1972-2001 no use and from 2002-present no use. Idk why the line was never abandoned past Rt 27. When Herman started getting shipments CR heavily rehabbed the line. Theu even replaced the switch to the warehouse on Veronica Ave and I dont understand...

Complaints about tracks signs? Millstone branch.

[attachment=0]IMG_0802.PNG[/attachment] Took a ride to check out the Millstone branch in Franklin Twp today. Needless to say it hasn't seen a turn of the wheels in 20 years and the tracks are not even recognizable. They have been paved over on Clyde Rd and Veronica Rd. Crossbucks removed. Interestin...

Yards around Buffalo Central Terminal

I was looking at some satelite maps of BCT and noticed what appeared to be a lot of old RR yard land around the terminal in all directions. Took a look at the historical arials and sure enough there was a few very large yard in proximity, one to the east was huge. Now they are all gone or reduced to...

Why did NS tear out Altoona Yards?

Just noticed that the yards that were always busy in Altoona, PA are torn out. It's the large yard that was under the 8th St bridge. I'm assuming it was NS that tore it out as the arials still show it in place and jammed with boxcars in 2010 but by 2013 it's all gone. Today just grassy fields. Why w...
