Photo view is from the Garden State Pkwy overpass. Exit #137 view E

The Aldene Plan ramp was graded and built for double track for future expansion as needed. It has not been implemented since the first operational opening day: 4/30/1967

The 4 track CNJ mainline to Communipaw, NJ ferry terminal has been totally razed c. after 8/6/1978 dead ahead. It is fully grown over at this time.

Federated Plastics siding is off to the right with a covered hopper on the siding. This siding connects to the SIRT switch just south of Cranford Junction near the ex-XC tower (razed <prior 1/01/1976).

Center of photo, just right of the signal: white poles/red tops. These are fiber optic cable lays along the ex-ROW.

Interesting photo! Need a little more explanation, though.
