Reminicing
Author: m1bprr

Visited my old stomping grounds yesterday, met up with a friend I grew up with,- we go back to 1955, Red, and I hired out on the PRR New York Region as brakemen as firemen were being eliminated in 1960, I stayed till 1964, Red stayed retiring from the NS.

We met by Sherbans Diner front St crossing (cp Sherbans) South Plainfield, NJ. caught up on old times had breakfast, shot a few trains, all in all a very nice visit. The area back in the Conrail days was our stomping grounds for myself, and a couple of others, we did a lot of night photography there back then, actually the crews knew we were out there, often gave us a horn salute. Great times indeed.

This is NS / CSX shared assets territory, that power car is for camp cars in the yard at S. Plainfield.

Hi Ed, I see a diner in the background of your photos. Question. How come most of your photo locations have eating places near them? Only kidding. Thanks for the photos.

Sherbans diner aka cp Sherbans was given this name by the Conrail men, many a train making a set off there sent the Conductor in for a take out coffee order.
