This is a postcard postmarked 1911 and mailed from East Orange, NJ to Providence, RI. The card shows the platforms and trainsheds of the new DL&W terminal in Hoboken, NJ. New to my collection. Be sure to look at the next photo down for a close-up view of the passenger cars!

Other than the platforms being cracked in places and the awning needs a paint job, Hoboken still looks pretty much the same.
I love the wrought iron gates that the platform attendants roll closed before trains depart.
Gives the place a European touch.


As you think, so will you be.

The CNJ shed in Jersey City is very similar although I understand it lacks expansion joints in the roof structure.

I was searching the web for old pictures of the Hoboken Terminal and ran across this recent photo.
This picture caught my eye for two reasons.
First, it shows track 6 and that is where my first train of the day on week days departs from.
Secondly, the fellow second from the right with the backpack is my engineer Pete.
