Where was that snow shot taken? (the one to the right of the Winslow tower shot) I like that shot the best.

....my guess is that's now the NJT AC Line, either Haddonfield or Westmont.

At that point, The Westville Cut-Off would have connected with the PRR. The steal "H" shaped power poll to the left was used to supply power to the Camden - Millville line when it was electrified. In the distance another steal power poll can be seen. The power came from Philadelphia. When crossing the Delair Railroad Bridge you can see the power plant. The picture was taken at the Haddonfield / Westmont boarder. Great picture!
