Unfortunately nothing remains in this area other than the signals and a few ties off to the side of the track

Looking towards Franklin Avenue. Tracks are very rusty and haven't looked like a train has been here in a long time.

I sometimes wonder if the railroad did ever pass here as longtime residents seemed to have forgotten. I had asked more than several residents who scratched their head when I asked for directions. The 80s weren't that long ago.

As I head closer to Newark, the tracks look less used.

I didn't see anythng on Cleveland Street which is supposed to be the next stop. I did, however, see an entrance to a platform on Mill Street

Looking towards Newark. The bridge in the background is the NY&GL crossing at Broadway in Newark. The North Newark station is close to here.

A close look at the NY&GL as it will cross the Passaic River and head to West Arlington.
