Description 

Built by the Morris & Essex Railroad around 1868-1869, just about the time the railroad was leased by the Lackawanna, it's been widened by more modern concrete as the line expanded to two-, three- and four-tracks during the coal-train heyday of the 20th Century, pre-WWII. But this happy little arch quietly hosts hundreds of daily commuter trains with thousands of daily commuters unaware of its significance and function. -- Mike Del Vecchio
