A Gathering at Bound Brook
Bound Brook, NJ was seldom quite as busy as seen in this shot from 1972. On the double-track Lehigh Valley in the foreground, an eastbound piggyback run-through off the Nickel Plate accelerates out of town, having just dropped a few cars in the small interchange yard with the CNJ, and passing the caboose of an eastbound local freight that had paused to allow the hotshot to make the required switching moves. As the piggybacker, led by an N&W GP35 and two older Geeps, gets underway, a CNJ commuter train, also with a GP7 makes a station stop in the background.
