The line was built as 6 ft ( 1,829 mm ) wide gauge ; this was believed to be a superior technology to standard gauge, providing more stability.

In 1848 the railroad built the Starrucca Viaduct , a stone railroad bridge over Starrucca Creek in Lanesboro, Pennsylvania which has survived and is still in use today. The viaduct is 1,040 feet (317 m) long, 100 feet (30.5 m) high and 25 feet (7.6 m) wide at the top. It is the oldest stone rail bridge in Pennsylvania still in use.

The Erie's charter was amended April 8, 1845 to allow the building of the Newburgh Branch , running from the main line near Harriman north-northeast to Newburgh , also on the Hudson River. The branch opened January 8, 1850. It was later used as a connection to the New York and New England Railroad via a car float operation across the river to Beacon, New York.

Throughout its existence, the MU&WG would be operated by larger neighboring railroads and its initial period under the Erie was relatively short-lived as it soon became an important link in a new system. On January 11, 1866, the New York & Oswego Midland Railroad (NY&OM) was incorporated with the goal of linking Oswego, NY, on Lake Ontario, with the Hudson River, opposite New York City.

Unfortunately for the NY&OM, the Panic of 1873 resulted in its inability to make the required payments under the arrangements of its lease of the NJM and on October 1, 1873 the NY&OM went bankrupt while the NJM resumed operation of its line from Jersey City to Unionville. The directors of the MU&WG met on November 22nd and prepared an application to the court for the NY&OM to turn the MU&WG over to the NJM which occurred on November 23rd. On January 30, 1874 the MU&WG was permanently leased to the NJM.

A new milk station between the milk station at Springside and Slate Hill was established at Eaton’s Crossing on June 29, 1878. In April, 1882, a switch was constructed at the Daniel H. Eaton farm near the second crossing north of Slate Hill (now Creedens). A year later, Eaton and his neighbor, Ira L. Cummings, built a milk station on the site and in June of 1884 they erected a small station building, “Eaton Station”. It should also be noted that at some point another milk station was established between Eaton’s and Slate Hill at the first crossing north of Slate Hill, Vail’s Crossing. This location may also have been referred to as Sayer’s Crossing.

I always visualized National Junction as a large facility but on the way from Weehawken to Jersey City there was a little sign on a steel post that said “National Junction”. CNJ delivered a coal train for PSG&E at North Bergen every other day at least and there was alot of traffic.

The beginning (Milepost 0) was at the southern end of the Weekawken Tunnel.New York Central had a large yard there at one time, which was why it bacame Milepost 0. It is across the Hudson River from the Empire State Building where Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr had their famous duel. In 2002, the track through the tunnel from North Bergen yard was severed for a new New Jersey Transit light rail line.

The New Jersey Junction Railroad Company owned the capital stock of the following companies: Jersey City and Bayonne Railroad Company, New Jersey Shore Line and State Line Stony Point.

Akron Railroad Club blog reader Jack Norris wrote from his home in New Jersey that because many of us here in Ohio are interested in the history of the Erie and Erie Lackawanna railroads that we might be interested in some news from the old New York Division.

In Waldwick, New Jersey (milepost 23.2) on four-track old Erie Mainline is the home of the famous Waldwick “S” curve (a.k.a. Collin’s Curve) and sits WC Tower.

The Victorian style wooden tower controlled the interlocking as well as the entrance to Waldwick Yard, a layover yard for intermediate distance commuter trains.
