Abandoned Rails of
Township of Hillside, New Jersey
This track went to what was originally the American Can Company. Afterwards it became a railroad car rebuilding company for a time. The track has been inactive for 20 years. Photo by Eric Kreszl.
This building was originally owned by the American Can Company, which shipped products out by rail. It was then sold to a person who used it to rebuild and refurbish railroad passenger cars, most of which were private. Photo by Eric Kreszl.
This track was used to delivered products to Bristol Meyers, who manufactured toothpastes, deodorants, etc. Bristol Meyers stopped shipping by rail about 15 to 20 years. Photo by Eric Kreszl.
Of the two crossings pictured, only one is still in use by the Oasis Foods Company. They receive 6 to 8 tankcars twice a week that carry cooking oils used in food manufacturing. The other track goes to the American Can Company (as seen earlier). Photo by Eric Kreszl.
This crossing of abandoned tracks is located at the corner of Ramsey Avenue and Bloy Street. Both sides of the crossing are heavily covered with weeds. Photo by Eric Kreszl.
