bigkid... Last RAIL EXPO was held in 1999. Great shows especially when a Classic Car Show was held at same date at same location but outside the Terminal.

I had my CNJ #189 track speeder there 1 year.

necrails... Only the tracks under train shed are fenced off due to condition of train shed roof. Remainder of ground level at station is accessible.

Susie and I sponsored this train sign and a few others... Hunterdon Commuter and Local to Bayonne in the early 2000's. Small plaques are no longer attached.

And...the Terminal is haunted too! Spent a few overnights there during Rail Expo and when all lights were out, heard footsteps across the platform and train gateman closing the gates...but nobody was there!

And...the 1/29th scale model of the BLUE COMET on display was donated by Aristo-Craft Trains.


PS: Belated Happy Birthday to Ben.
