Related to my previous post-here are scans of Raritan and shots from the mid-day Pburg train -all from Oct 74-note Raritan before the separate 2-track line to the shops was torn up, and still-active Boyd Tower

Thanks for posting! I grew up in Somerville and unfortunately didn't venture out to Raritan enough to see that scene before it was consolidated into 2 tracks. I remember Somerville yard pretty well, but didn't own a camera unfortunately.

The era of my fave memories of CNJ at work. The year after I graduated high school. They look so dated.

GSC, you are old.

That makes us BOTH old! I'm the same age (on the approach circuit for 55 but I can see the "distant signal" for 60 out there in the dark!)
