    There were three stations in my hometown of Hawthorne NJ. Two belonged to the NYS&W. They were the passenger station on Diamond Bridge Avenue in the center of town and the freight station a mile or so up the line at the North Hawthorne shops. The other station was the Erie mainline station just down the street from my house. This view is from an early postcard showing the Susquehanna station. It's still there, and it still looks like this today. It's a small, wooden station with a sliding door for express, small freight, etc. and is very typical of railroad architecture of the time.

    Neat post card. I wonder if you could get a picture of the station as it is today so we could see a side-by-side comparison. Of course, I wouldn't expect to see a train pulled by a steam engine... :)
