I am looking to find out what this structure was used for and when in operation and stopped. I was at NJ Transit Summit Station on August 23,2022 . It appears to be some type of tower for tracks and controlling trains at the east end by Summit Avenue. Summit, NJ. see atatchment

Also does anyone know when the Summit NJ Station was built. and the railroad? I want to add that information requested here into picture albums on railroad picture archibves.net of Summit Station and the structure.
Any help is greatly appreciated and will be mentioned i the album(s) . Thank you Steve Coraggio, [email protected]
