I am new to the list, so please bear with me.
I lived in Boonton from 1958 to 1978. I saw a lot of changes over the years.
From Trainmasters to SD45-2s. I remember those Tri State meetings at Dover
station and at the Mennon building.

When I was in Boonton High school in the 1970's. A neighbor gave me a Xerox
copy of the Boonton station taken from Main St. bridge looking east over the
station. In this picture is four tracks and a signal bridge with modern type
for that time, and Drew Chemical in the background. The copy of the picture
was given me was from what I was told the Boonton Times or some local
from that time period. My neighbor found it I believe at the Holmes Library.
He knew
I liked trains so he gave it to me.

I have attached a copy of the picture. It's not real good because it was
scanned by
one of those liquid toner Xerox copiers and after years go by the copies

Can anyone give some more input to this picture or have a better copy of it?

Thank You,

Ed Wheeler
