The last time I was at Liberty State park and took photos was 10-14-2015. The cupola atop the bell tower was removed and down on the ground plaited for shipping or maybe returned from wherever. I'll show this in 2 photos. Also all the vegetation in the track areas under the train shelters was removed. In a few places the shelters were removed. I'll show this in 2 photos also.

Now for a to be built locomotive of the CRR of NJ.
 
I have put together a Atlantic locomotive that was built by the Reading for use by the CRR of NJ. The Reading built 6 of there latest P5 class 4-4-2 locomotive for the Central. They are #800 through 805. My model I found is a used Custom Brass locomotive form 1983, with no tender. I called a acquaintance Dan Hicks of Allentown to get one of his camelback tender kits. It is a proper one for this locomotive, and should look good.  
 
 Missing is the can motor and the tower gear box. Everything else is seen here that I have now for the rebuild. I still need a headlight and marker lights of which I may have already.

In classic CNJ commuter train style, we see Camelback #757, a 4-6-0 built in 1936, making a station stop at this town that according to the cartoonist who lived here, was creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky, or at least it was in 1971 when it made the headlines......

This location dates from 1912, and the business that "created" it so to speak, left, for the most part, by 1980, though the effects linger to this day.

Hibernia Mine Railroad Bridge - By NEFAN on 02/18/16 at 19:03:37 - 'CNJ_Hibernia_Mine_RR_Raritan_NJ_816x612.jpg' 131 KB
I walked on the Raritan greenway today and found the restored Hibernia Mine RR bridge that at one time was at the end of Mill Road in Hillsborough NJ. I used to ride my bicycle down Mill road in the early 90's and carefully walk across the then closed bridge on my way to Neshanic. One day it was gone. The bridge carried RR trains as built in 1879 and was moved by the CNJ to Mill lane as part of a grade separation project. It became a wood planked vehicle bridge that crossed the CNJ Flemington branch. The DOT dismantled the historic bridge in the 1990's and put it in storage.  
 
Here is a photo of it now restored in its new location in Raritan NJ.

Charlie and Al are BOTH correct!
 
Easton, PA, looking eastbound, sometime in the 1960's. The train itself is a mail-express, probably at this time only as far as Allentown, cut back from Harrisburg. I say that, only because of the mechanical reefer that appears in the left corner of the shot. That car, by the way is sitting on the freight station track, Al.

Well I guess I have proved I didn't like my 2 short wall with the double peaks. The south-east and north west walls. The only good thing done with them is I recycled them. The new ones will be better.  
Here is the south west wall now. It is cut straighter and done cleaner. Maybe I learned something from making the other walls.

A find in a old History Book.
* CRRofNJ Predecessor's Railroad line shown running past Summerville NJ.
The use of a 4-2-0 locomotive and stagecoach type coaches really set the seen.
Can someone date the seen and name the railroad.

Re:  The Ashley shops of the CRR of NJ. - By toptrain on 07/09/15 at 08:50:17 - 'Ashley_PA_shop_S.jpg' 211 KB
Back to Chucks postcard view of the Ashley shops. Look at the blacksmith shop good. Something is happening here. I think this is when the new building is being built. The original building was replaced after a fire in 1888. The original building built at unknown time, was of one story wood structure and smaller. New brick building had a clearstory window built along its roof peak like the locomotive erecting shop, with identical brick decorative trim along roof edge, in photo of Erecting shop, reply #4. Another feature on roof is 4 dog house style dormers evenly spaced on roof. I think on each side. It shows in this one and other photos. Latest photos show the clearstory windows were removed.  They are missing in the building as it was before it was demolished.
Info from Chris Bare, Hagley Library.
Blacksmith shop built ___; burned May 30, 1881; new shop built 1888 (ICC); 46 x 88;  building that burned, one-story, frame. <( 46 X 88 is much smaller than the new brick blacksmith shop, Sanborn 1896 and 1919 drawings agree that brick building is 63 X 113 feet ).

During that old correspondence, I got in contact wiith the widow of Curley West who played with the group.  They also were known as the Westernairs and played on WAAT Radio as well as at the Wonderpool Tavern at Frelinghuysen Avenue and Vanderpool Street in Newark.
 
I have attached a postcard image, the widow was able to identify most members. From left: Billy Hicks, Jimmy Dale, Tex Cal(deron?), Shorty Warren, Freddie Del, Smokey Warren.
 
As I asked before, and will ask again, does anyone know where a copy of this song can be found?

This also happens to be one that I DO NOT know where it is......I have a good idea, but I am still researching my guess.
 
So it's kinda up for grabs - Maybe one of you guys know exactly where this is.

Re: Ashley Yard - By Ashley_Planes on 07/31/07 at 21:21:37 - 'Ashley_Aerial_View2.jpg' 206 KB
Good Evening, Everyone,  
I found this cool photo of the Ashley area on line today.  There is a hand-written "1938", however, I suspect this is wrong, as the breaker did not start operating until 1 Feb 1939, and had an aerial tramway for disposal of mine waste.  This tramway was blown down by a windstorm in May '49 and was replaced with the rock belt.  Clearly, the rock belt is in place at the time of this photo (Shiny line from back of breaker to lower left corner of photo).  Also not the loack of steam locomotives at the round house, though it looks like there may be one or two near the coal tower.  Unfortunately, the resolution is not good enough to tell.  Hope everyone enjoys the photo.  
 
John

Along the E'port and Newark Branch - By Al T on 07/19/07 at 07:17:09 - 'incinerator.gif' 64 KB
Using the Elizabethport to Newark shuttle in the 1950s and 1960s, I remember a number of industrial sites along the line.  After passing Newark Airport and Port Newark, there was a site on the west side of the tracks a short distance before we came to Brill's Junction and the N&NY branch.  
 
This facility had two large conical incinerators (illustration of a similar one below is from Walthers).  I believe this was Naporano scrapping; and I don't know if they were scrapping locomotives in those years.  I don't remember seeing any around the property.
 
I had thought I once read they also scrapped CNJ steam, but looking quickly through Warren Crater's book, don't see mention of them.
 
Anyone remember Naporano's in those days?
