That is news to me but then again, I didn't usually venture to those areas when I was a
kid. We usually took a #318 Public Service Bus for 35 cents to the port authority terminal in N.Y.C. and wandered the streets. My familiarity is the PRR station in Newark and the
main lines in and out of there but mostly the North/South run to the shore areas. My Aunt lived in Seaside Heights. The train from Philadelphia came over Barnegat Bay from Toms River on a long low wooden bridge. It was only a matter of time before hot ash ignited those old dry pilings and it burned down. That was the end of it.
Until then, however, the train came in at Seaside Park and right down the middle of the
road through seaside ending at Bay Head. When we heard the whistle way up in Seaside Park, we'd run down to the track to watch it pull through - a big K4 Steamer up front in
in all its huffing and puffing glory. The engineer would blow the whistle for us. Didn't get any better than that.
