Indeed, it IS Overpeck Creek Drawbridge (though I don't think it's operated as a drawbridge for MANY years now) in Ridgefield Park, NJ, right across the Hackensack River from LITTLE Ferry, and just upstream from the PSE&G POWER station.
 
This train is on the old NYC West Shore, and just to the right, is the NYS&W's mainline. As I mentioned, passenger service past here ended a LONG time ago.
 
Though not the same photo or angle (I can't find what I did with the un-cropped version!), this one actually gives you a better view of the power plant and NYS&W tracks. Both views look railroad east, compass south.

Looking down the NYS&W tracks, you can  clearly see the two railroads used two different kinds of drawbridges.

Ready for some more "Route of the Mating Worms" GTL's? (Sorry PC fans, I couldn't resist)
 
This location is home to the County in which it resides, of four NATIONAL Historical Sites, and is the home of three Major League Baseball players, a governor of Wisconsin, a member of the House of Representatives, a US Senator, and some guy known for jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge!
 
Today, the town is served by R.J. Corman.......
