Remarks & Notes 
Built in 1908 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Raritan River Drawbridge, "River Draw", is the sole rail link for 17 of the 20 rail stations on NJ Transit's North Jersey Coast Line (NJCL) and spans the distance between Perth Amboy and South Amboy, NJ about a half a mile from where the Raritan River meets the Atlantic Ocean, carrying an average of 10,000 NJ Transit costumers a day. A new bridge will soon be built to replace the existing swing bridge, which suffered severe damage during hurricane Sandy. The bridge is seen here carrying a westbound New York to Long Branch local over the waters of Raritan Bay on a windy late Spring afternoon. Update: the day after this photo was taken, the NJ Transit Board of Directors approved the start of the construction of the new bridge. Construction is set to begin in July of 2020.
