Bernardsville on the Gladstone Branch?
 
Definitely appears to be on a branch-line, just trying to think branch with electric.

While NEFAN had the correct branch, Charlie had the correct station. This is looking railroad east at Bernardsville, NJ on the P&D, circa 1961.

Logical assumption, but incorrect for a few reasons. (too many tracks being one)

No sir! Right branch, wrong station. I'm surprised, you usually guess with such razor sharp precision first time, every time! As with most small stations on this branch, in modern times (ie: NJT), I think the Rolling Stones must have been retained as Facilities consultants, as that is all that is here today.

Bringo!
 
Here's the full photo shown below.
 
As per Wikipedia - "George Howell was an engineer who surveyed the area for the New Jersey West Line Railroad. The station is named after his wife, Rachel Gillette Cornish, who he married while working in the area."
 
Just imagine, if the Lehigh Valley's New Jersey West Line RR had come to fruition as their mainline across New Jersey, this might have been double, maybe even tripple tracked through here, and a much bigger station could have been erected!
