Wildwood Junction to Wildwood

Point of Interest

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 branch was not part of the 1932 abandonment. It was abandoned around 1973

During the late 1980s, on my way to Cape May, I remember seeing rails on this line passing underneath the Garden State Parkway. They were not being used by then. Last time I saw them was around 1990, and by 1994, they were gone. The station at Wildwood Jct. still exists, but is in very poor shape.



There is now a train ride from Tuckahoe to the Wildwood Depot running as a tourist attraction, A semi modern conveyance is used with controls at each end, never rode it, bug saw it depot an old origin Depot. So much history in that area. It blows the explorers mind even at my age, 78 years old

This was actually ceded to New Jersey Transit who in turn lease the rails that are still there to the Cape May Seashore Lines Railroad. Due to vandalism the train has not run down this far in many years. The rails that still exist were the Pennsylvania Reading Seashore Lines. The West Jersey & Seashore Lines rails were ripped up back in the 1930's. Many portions of the former WJ&SRR rail bed are now bicycle paths.
