Glad to post. That stranded boxcar in New Albany was moved to a business nearby is what I had heard. Not sure exactly where.

Its at Dushore Materials, just off Rt. 220 heading south out of Dushore PA.
Its spotted on the south side of building visible from 220.
You can still make out the North Pacific logo.

Pittstown NJ station is still there, though the roof was damaged and a tree is leaning on it.

One of the holes in the roof now. I was able to see inside through a hole in one window.

A few bridges still exist on the line and were re-decked for the trail.

The LV upgraded the bridges on this branchline with steel in the 1940's.

Took a walk on the old LV Clinton NJ branch. It is now a well maintained trail. The Clinton Branch was abandoned by Conrail in 1982. The previous year saw only twelve cars delivered, so it's fate was sealed. There is a large lumber yard and an old mill in Clinton which must have been the main customers in later years.
 
The passenger station did not survive (unlike Pittstown NJ) but the freight station is part of the lumber company and is in excellent condition. Compare this to the Flemington freight house.
