Erie Railroad-Newark Branch

PSE&G Whitcomb Switcher


The PSE&G Whitcomb switcher that has been sitting in the same place on

the PSE&G Athenia Switcher property for about 20 years,

was moved probably by being pushed to the far end of the track,

at the bumper nearest the Newark Branch crossing of Van Houten Avenue in Clifton. 

 The remainder of the rails and the three transformer carrying rail trucks,

looks to have been hauled off.  They have obviously opened up their property,

 and pushed the switcher out of the way!
