The next station and last one in Newark (heading to Paterson) would be Woodside Station whichis located on the north side of Grafton Avenue. Not sure when it was removed.
 
You are looking towards Mill street.

An even more dangerous area was the next stop on the branch which was named Ricerside. It is located on Chester Avenue. The site is under part of what is McCarter Highway or Route 21.
 
At first I thought I had found a station but after further review

An approximate location of where the station might have been. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
 
You are looking towards the direction of where I beleive the station was located. The McCarter Highway is just ahead.

Okay, I'm lost and Harold tells me I'm where I want to be. He looks at some of the pictures I have of the area, courtesy of the "Diamond" and everything is looking good again.

Tracks can still be found here if you look around. I believe that no serivce comes down this far any longer. The tracks further up from here are almost gone.

Just a little down the road there's a yard belonging to some company where you can see the remains of many tracks one of which leads to the bridge

Was this the heaviest bridge that crossed the Passaic? When was it last down?
