    Thought I'd join in!

    A sting of reefers passes over the crossing in front of the brand new Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery which sports new stucco on the walls in this undated but circa 30s-40s photo. That crossbuck is the only protection for the trains on two tracks so be careful when heading over to Ralph's.

    Early 1960's now as an NYC 50 ft box car glides by. Ralph's has done Ok over the years but a new Shop Rite is planning to open over in Kings Port. After a number of accidents and near misses with automobile traffic a lighted crossing has been installed. A tree is growing to the left of the store.

    Present day (1974) and that neat polaroid camera I got for Christmas creates this square image of Penn Central box cars rocking by. Unfortunately Ralph's was no match for Shop Rite and couldn't make a go of it any more. That tree is starting to over take the property...
