While I'm at it, let's start an L&NE GTL.......Since most of us here are too young (maybe not!) to have seen, let alone photgraphed the L&NE in action, all we need to remember when posting photos is to give phot credit to the photographer, or at the very least the website.
 
So, to begin, here is a spot in NJ (of course!) that I pass quite often, not too far from Pennsylvania. You can still see where the RR crossed here today. After someone guesses correctly, I have a modern day shot of this location to share.
 
GTL....................

Wouldn't that be closer to Columbia, NJ?

Ya know guys, I'd say both a correct. Hainesburg (and it's Junction) were only a few hundred feet back behind the train, and "downtown" Columbia is a few (2-3) miles ahead of the train. This area technically covered by the post office in Columbia, at least now a days.
 
Here's the modern day photo -

This one is compliments of John Treen from Antique Photo Store's collection, located in Lafayette Village, NJ. The date is 1955.

WOW, never seen that photo before !! I would think if it was from John Treen that it wouldn't be that hard to figure out, but it's got me baffled.

Is there a spot you don't know, Marty? Yes, it is on trackage rights near the "end of the line"

Correct NEFAN!!!! Not sure if it's 207. Caption only notes Campbell Hall.
I happened to find the store's website by accident and don't know if the owner bought the pics/negatives from Treen's estate or is selling them for them. They have not only L&NE, but also NYS&W, L&HR, some Erie ones too.
I have one I bought and when I get time I will scan and post here for my next GTL.

Yes, NY Route 207. He just crossed the diamonds of the Erie Graham Line, and the NYO&W Campbell Hall station is just ahead- heading for Maybrook. John was standing just about where the Erie Campbell Hall station stood (now, a display caboose is at the location). Tracks are still in use; owned by NS, operated by the M&NJ.
 
When I was on the road as a courier, I'd stop at the deli just out of frame to the left for my daily caffeine fix.
 
John's negatives wound up with his friend Bob Mohowski; several years ago Bob donated them to the Antique Photo Store. The store has a tremendous collection- some of which is online.

You got it Dr.  
Deckertown Extension is off to the right. Papakating Creek is on the left.
Here's a pic I took back in 2005 from the road bed.
