Working east to west, with Sheppard circa 1974
Crossovers at the west end of Roseville platform, which allowed a wb local to move to express, and an other set which allowed a westbound express to move to local. This switch set is sorta surprising because anybody who stopped at Newark would be on #3, and the major reason for this would be to avoid a Montclair branch turn out. There's a mirror image at Roseville allowing an eb local to go to the express track and bypass Newark. Its companion is the Montclair to 3-1-2 switch
No siding track at Ward Pla, Greenwood Ave by Grove Street Sta
Between EO and Brick, there's a two track siding off the westbound. Sheppard shows a facing on the east, with an immediate hand throw to two siding tracks. Both connect back to 3 track (wb local) at the east end of the Brick platform. The facing switch is above Burnet street.
Crossovers between Brick and Orange, from 3 (wb local) to 1 (express) to 2(eb local), and on to the siding for the coal dealer. The coal dealer had a reverse facing switch at the east end, a direct switch at the west end AND a switch about a third of the way east. Sheppard calls it Orange Fuel, I remember it as John Duffy and Alden Coal. The intermediate switch is about over S. Day Street.
This switch enabled a wb local to move to the express track, or an eb local to move to the express track. It would also allow an express to move to the "wrong" main east or west.
The Rheingold lead is off the eb track, about 500 feet west of the Brick station, and east of the coal lead. Sheppard shows it as dead ended at the compass west end, but near the east end of the coal track.
On the westbound track, between Hickory Street and Center street is a siding with a reverse facing switch. There's no place to stash the pull-out cars, which is sorta surprising.
West of Orange, Sheppard doesn't show the REA track, which I recall continued off the eb from the area of I-280, along the long platform, and connected back to the main at the station proper. he does show the tail track coming west out or Orange yard. I believe the state built a special bridge over 280 to accomodate this track.
There's a very short siding off the wb over Cory St (just west of 280?) which looks to be about three car lengths. It connects with the wb at both ends.
