the Lackawanna's Newton Passenger Station
presented here are based on photographic evidence and ICC Valuation
Map information. I've drawn the station as it might appear in 3 distinct
time periods, 1910, with the full portico,
1953, the steam/diesel transition period,
and 1966, the end times with no portico.
to Bob Pennisi at Railroad Avenue Enterprises, I have secured
several photographs that are so sharp and clear, I can easily count
the bricks to determine the measurements of the doors and windows!
If you see
anything amiss in my drawings, please speak
up. I strive to make these as accurate as possible.
If you ever
had opportunity to be INSIDE this station, I'd love
to attempt a floor plan.
photographs or scans of photographs of this or any other Sussex County,
New Jersey railroad station are always welcome.
