Haleyville to Bivalve


GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This abandoned route is at the end of a branch in Cumberland County, in the southern pine barrens of New Jersey. The segment of the branch between Bridgeton and somewhere near Haleyville/Mauricetown remains in service by the Winchester & Western, where hopper cars are loaded with sand. The abandoned segment disappeared in the 1950s or 1960s. Bivalve is a small fishing port on the west bank of the Maurice River, near where the river empties into Delaware Bay.

Thanks to Mike Palmer for contributing information about this route.

Recently I discovered a small remnant of track left intact from this line at Bivalve's bayshore center, complete with a historic wooden boxcar which now serves as restrooms. Here's a video I took of it : https://youtu.be/DkVzDNAS7DU
