Where were the shops located? A link to Google Maps would be helpful. Thanks.

The crossing of the CNJ main line by the Newark Branch and the Chemical Coast is clearly visible from the satellite view, as is the embankment to the CNJ Bayonne bridge

160 Veterans Memorial Drive, look eastward

I spent a lot of time railfanning E'port in the 1970's but moved from NJ in 1981. On subsequent trips back there over the decades, I don't recognize the place anymore...

I assume it's that splotch of land with nothing on it, south of the NS facility?

Put 40.659N 74.179W into the search box at
https://historicaerials.com/viewer and look at the 1954 aerial pics.
It's on the north side of the main, east side of the line to Newark.

The area was basically obliterated by the early 1990's. The shops, station and even the fill dirt up to the Newark Bay bridge was removed.
