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.
