John,
 
Not sure where all my L&NE pictures disappeared to on this forum on the L&NE but here's an addition. This is right in Augusta where the EL crossed with the L&NE.

Nice shots, Ken.
As far as your other pics, maybe the masked train robber took them!!!
I have some more to post that I took in Sussex earlier this year of the old station location (now High point Chevy) and back towards junction with mainline.
 
Question... does anyone get to the library at Rutgers in New Brunswick? They have old Sanborn maps for reference and I would like to get one of Sussex. I can get one directly from Sanborn but cost is $125. Right now that is not in my budget. These maps show street names, property w/ names, u/g piping, railroad ROW/bldgs, etc.
I have a copy of one from Unionville that the town hall had.

Hello John,
 
Not sure where they went. Perhaps I posted them in the NYS&W group since they shared the line between Swartswood and Hainesburg. Someday, I'm going to organize them like I should have from the beginning.
 
I have not been to Rutgers but let me know if these maps help. I don't know if they're going to be as detailed as you would like but take a look:
 
http://www.geocities.com/transit383/maps.html
 
http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/gmdhtml/rrhtml/rrhome.html
 
http://mapmaker.rutgers.edu/MAPS.html
 
Also, please let me know when you go exploring again as I would like to explore as well if that is alright with you.
 
Our Monthly Sussex Railroad club meets this Saturday evening. There are several presenters who will provide some great info on the EL and trains in general in Franklin. Let me know if you're interested and I'll provide you with the logistics.
 
Ken

       Please allow me to say that these pictures were excellent, and truly made a profound statement: What we've lost we will never be able to retrieve. Sad that trains will never again roll along this old ROW. Though the L&NE is a road that isn't in the "big league" like the Santa Fe, the PRR, or the NYCRR, it's obviously a road that has a rich history that is too valuable to ignore. Again, great pics!!

Haven't been to Sussex in a few years, but I'll take a guess and say it's at the end of the Deckertown Extension?
 
And please, post more soon!

Almost, it was about 1/10 of mile before the station. It is just across from what used to be Consolidated Lumber Co. on Walling Ave.
Here's some pics of the fountain that was by the station.This is looking south. The SUVs are where the station used to be. Walling Ave. is on the left.

Here's another close-up of the fountain looking north. Intsection of Rt. 23, 565 is behind and up on the hill is the backside of Sussex Inn (Union House). Older pictures show a higher ornament on the fountain, similar to what was in the center of town and the founatin by the NYSW up on the hill.

Below is partial of the station picture from GingerB's website(author unknown) with the fountain with tall portion intact. This seemed to be a typical fountain design for Sussex. In the background is the Sussex Inn, a favorite watering hole when we became legal in the '70s.

Across the station and on the other side of the tracks at the end of the Deckertown Extension is the Sussex Garage, a.k.a. H&S Chevrolet, now High Point Chevy/Hyundai. If you ever in the area stop by because in the service waiting room, they have prints/pics from Wayne McCabe & others. Included are Bordern Creamery(up next), Fountain Sq. INN w/ fountain in town center, NYS&W station, & other various businsses.

Here's pic #1 of the front side of the Creamery. It now houses offices and apartments. It is adjacent to the dealership but set back more from the tracks. Probably for a siding or two. Per the picture in the dealership it was origianlly the Horton & Lewis Creamery, but my father always referred to it as Borden Creamery. I wish the leaves weren't on the trees so you could get better view of the building itself but...I'll just have to go back and take some more.

Pic #2 of the north half Creamery. Darn trees keep getting in the way!!
I have others of side buildings, residences but figured I would keep to the more important industries served by the RR. It's a shame I didn't get pics of Consolidated Lumber before that got torn downback in the 90s.

Just bought 4 negatives off E-bay of L&NE by the NYSW crossing. Shows the water tower, sidings, passenger car. The one was taken from tall structure, maybe coal tower?, looking south towards what is now rt. 23. You can see the Deckertown Extension in background along with another wye that turns into or just behind what is now Bob & Bill's Auto. Here's shot from E-bay posting

I guess I should have had this in a new thread since this is really NY. My bad.
 
Was this also Napa Auto Parts at one time? It is now a day care.
