I looked all over town for any signs of it, but didn't find anything I could prove in a court of law.There were two rail lines that ran through sussex. The NYSW line ran in front of what is now the A&P on lower Unionville Rd then ran across 284 and followed 284 (roughly) to Unionville. If you follow the line from the A&P north, it appears that there are many buildings that were once served on the ROW. There is a shopping plaza that has been recently remodeled, there is a quiznos in there now off of 284. I remember before this was remodeled, and I think this might be the old sussex trainstation. correct me if Im wrong.
As for the L&NE the old ROW runs under the bridge before you get to the A&P. you can look to the right and see the concrete piers where the NYSW crossed the LNE. The LNE had a small branch line which ran off the main and roughly just passed the Brookside ball fields and terminated at the "Creamery" behind High Point Chevrolet. The LNE station is still there in someone's back yard.(its painted the same color as the house, and the loading platforms and the overhangs have been sawed off)
