Where the NYS&W crossed the DL&W's Sussex Branch


Warbasse Junction 1949

An eastbound NYS&W freight approaches the diamond at Warbasse Junction in March of 1949. The photographer is standing on the DL&W's Sussex branch, looking north with the Warbasse Jct. Road grade crossing to his back.

Warbasse Junction 2002

More than 50 years later, very little remains at Warbasse Junction (also sometimes reffered to as Hyper-Humus). This view also looks north on the Lackawanna.

Warbasse Junction 1962

This view looks east across the diamond at a westbound Susquehanna freight in the summer of 1962. Notice the smash-board at the right.
