Tom:
 
Thanks for sharing this classic and timeless CNJ view; yes, indeed, THIS was RAILROADING!
 
Pictures like this recall the local "drills" of long ago, when a caboose was sure to be on hand!
 
Like so many other "permanent" aspects of railroading, far too many of us took the humble caboose for granted......

Like the rods from the "Armstrong" levers in the tower; the caboose is another thing I miss from back in the day.

CHESSIEMIKE:
 
I still cannot fathom how quickly the downfall of the caboose took place (at, least, to me it seem like a clear case of "here today, gone tomorrow")
 
At one time, I really do not think that any of us, once upon a time, could even TRY to fathom a freight devoid of a caboose....it was, quite simply, a crime against all that was sane and natural!
 
The last "shacks" I remember in my general area were those ever-present Conrail cars......I am sure many simply did not give them more than a quick glance or two, figuring:
 
"......aaahhh, they all look alike, and, anyway, they'll always be around......"
 
Once again, the world of railroading taught us yet another powerful lesson.......
 
"H.F.M."
 
PS: NICE pic!
 
Yet another classic railroading scene taken for granted.......

......here's one I took from the late 50s early 60s showing work being done a CNJ plywood sheathed caboose at the railroad's Elizabeth Port NJ shops. The nature of the job is a bit of a mystery to me as it seems too late of a time period for this to be new construction and considering the railroads financial condition it doesn't make sense that this would be a repair....perhaps a restoration for a private owner?? O.W Link had some of his pieces of railroad equipment there at the time..... 'tis a puzzlement....Tom

Tom:
 
An interesting picture, indeed!
 
Glad you've shared this one with us!
 
Perhaps, as you commented, this MIGHT have been a restoration for a private owner; in "JERSEY CENTRAL LINES IN COLOR" (Volume 3), we see a pic of O.W. Link's CP 4-6-0 at E'Port, in 1961.
 
Perhaps this caboose was also part of his "collection".
 
Then again, who knows exactly what the story was behind your caboose photo?
 
Seems that the CNJ was always full of surprises, even in its darkest days.......

....here's a photo I took of CNJ #91319 as it travels east bound through Bayonne's E 33rd Street Station in the late afternoon during the early 1960s. I was a kick to see those old arch bar trucks which were still in use as these 'hacks' were not permitted in interchange service.

Much nostalgia in this latest view; certainly brings back many old memories of the CNJ.......the iron fencing between the tracks at stations were as much a part of the CNJ as was "Lady Liberty" Herself!
 
I used to really get a kick out of seeing freights with TWO "crummies" bringing up the rear!
 
Man, where has it all gone......

.....the rear end brakeman climbs aboard the caboose of his slow moving, Jersey Central, eastbound freight in this photo I took, dating from the early 1960's at East 33rd. Street, Bayonne NJ.....Tom
