Another Boonton Line/Greenwood Lake Branch Train at Glen Ridge, NJ
EL 3362 (U34CH) shoves an EL commuter train across Benson St. in Glen Ridge, NJ on the former Erie Greenwood Lake Branch. By the end of 1973 this line had been part of the Boonton Line for about 10 years, and this train probably originated at Dover or some point farther west. Service on this portion of the line ended with the completion of the Montclair connection in 2002, and current day Montclair/Boonton branch trains stop at the former DL&W station several blocks away. There is still a connection to the old Erie alignment at the west end of the Montclair connection, but the tracks there were lost in weeds on my last visit. Not sure what, if anything, is left of the Erie's presence in Glen Ridge, the 1st station east of Montclair.
