Hamburg Station

Hamburg, New Jersey

MP 26.4 (from Waterloo, Sussex Railroad)


Hamburg Lehigh & Hudson Station

This station appears on an 1881 Sussex Railroad timetable. It is listed as being .3 (point three) miles north of Hamburg Junction.

While I have not found a photograph of the Sussex Railroad station in Hamburg, I have found this picture of the Lehigh & Hudson River Railroad station which likely occupied the same site.

This photo shows the connection between the New York, Susquehanna & Western railroad and the Lehigh & Hudson River railroad. In Sussex Railroad days, the S.R.R. and the N.Y.S.& W. shared the track from Franklin to this point which was called Hamburg Junction, where the S.R.R. broke off to continue north to McAfee.

After the L.& H.R bought the track from McAfee to Hamburg, they inherited the trackage rights and used them until building their parallel track from Hamburg to Franklin.

This photo is of the trestle over what is now Rt. 23 in Hamburg. The Lehigh & Hudson rebuilt this trestle in 1908, so it is very possible that this is original Sussex Railroad construction
