Thank you, kind sir ! I have an extensive collection of LV postcards, but I never thought of adding CNJ, or others , that had the LV in the pic. The PC shown is definately on the "other" side, where you said it was. It would be nice to find a topo map, from the early 30's, or even a detailed street map, from that era. When I lived at 137 Jerome st., apt F, I would regularly walk the lines, when not on duty. I walked the RVRR dozens of times, all year round, looking at old sidings, abandoned branches, etc. I even walked the CNJ, to the Bayonne bridge, and back, on a few occasions. Lots of history out there, for those with time, and energy, to go out and see it. Walked the Valley, to Potter, and back, as well as to the old Meeker ave station, down in Newark. It was sad to see the old RV "roundhouse" (squarehouse ?
) razed. We lost the plastic business there,(Kenilworth) and the final loss was the lumber yard, down there at Rt. 22. I had the pleasure (not much of a pleasure, though) of pulling the last revenue car off that line, before service was ceased. Locos went to Bingo, roundhouse was leased to a couple of guys, who stored some E-8 units there (I worked on them, after hours, before they were shipped out to a commuter line. You wont believe how fast we had them running, on the "BIG CURVE", coming up to Kenilworth Ave, from Rt. 22
) The Valley interchange was already being prepared, to be sold off, although we preferred to run this way, the Valley side was a lot better trackage, than the "ramble through the grass" we attempted, when running to the Central side. Conrail wouldn't let us come out, at Roselle, but NJT let us cross over at EXCEE, so this was the way we ran. Occasionally, the interchange was made in the Valley yard, and conductor Buda and myself pulled 14 loaded plastic hoppers out of that yard, and up to Kenilworth , with the 16, and no sand. Quite an accomplishment, I assure you ! Keep the info coming, it's good to hear at least one old line won't become a *&#@% bike trail. Regards
