Remarks & Notes 
A Central of New Jersey Railroad survivor - built in 1894, this station is located in Elizabeth, NJ and was once host to the Central of New Jersey Railroad, the Reading and B&O trains but saw its last train on August 6, 1978. A long abandoned 4 tracked right of way ran through here, its right of way visible here in the foreground, while traffic running a near parallel route on the Pennsylvania Railroad between Baltimore and New York City can be seen in the background. Passengers on CNJ's main eventually reached the Communipaw Terminal in Jersey City where they were forced to take a ferry if they desired to travel into New York. The mighty PRR, on the other hand, had a direct connection via the Hudson Tunnels. The PRR line, now better known as Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, travels over the CNJ main just to the north and this station would be visible to passengers exiting the PRR's Elizabeth station.
