Remarks & Notes 
Pennsy By SA. NJT Train 7212 was appropriately powered by NJTR 4636 (ALP46A, Bombardier, Pennsylvania Railroad Heritage) as it passed SA Tower on the morning of September 3, 2022. During the New York & Long Branch years of the joint operation of the Pennsylvania Railroad and Central Railroad of New Jersey, Pennsy electrics would pass by here and be removed for diesels to continue the trip to Bayhead, New Jersey.

An Essay On SA. A piece of New Jersey Railroad history was removed on Tuesday, August 29, 2023 when the former SA Tower was demolished. While called the interlocking is called "Essay" under NJ Transit, the origin of the name is from South Amboy, the location of the tower. Built in 1927, this tower controlled where the PRR/Pennsylvania Railroad's Amboy Branch (today's Conrail Shared Assets Amboy Secondary) joined the New York & Long Branch (then jointly owned with CNJ/Central Railroad Of New Jersey) to go over the Raritan River Bridge, closed on July 2, 1986. The area has seen a lot of change since the NY&LB years, as the last engine change here was in 1988, and the South Amboy engine house and facilities are now long gone. The SA Tower structure was removed as part of the construction of the new Raritan River Draw Bridge, which is planned to open in 2026.
