Since the post-1963 track re-alignments could freight going up/down the ex-ERIE So. Tier use the new Main Line too (i.e. ex-DL&W iron from Clifton to Secaucus) to enter/exit Croxton ?
If you do a mapquest for new county road in Secaucus, you'll see three rail lines cpassing under the NJ Turnpike
The leftmost line is the old Boonton Line/NY&GL coming in past the Public Service plant.
The center rail line is the NJT Main Line / original Boonton Line from Lyndhurst. That line went thru west secaucus yard and up to west end with the M&E division. SEC Transfer is between this line and the Erie line
The right line is the Erie coming down from Rutherford, past HX and Harmon Cove and into Croxton.
I haven't been to the DL&W yard since they had their old Trainmasters on the rip track, but the area is now expansion for the Harmon Cove outlets. I don't think there's any rail presence at all. Plenty of very hot women looking for $10 Prada bags, D&G tops, etc, though
