Sussex Branch Memorial Main Index>LNE Wreck
These are photos which were sent to me recently by Judy Rogers. They show the result of a wreck on the Lehigh & New England Railroad which occurred under the Rt. 23 bridge outside of Sussex, NJ in 1958.

I remember seeing mention of this wreck in my research, but I did not grab the article. If anyone happens to know when in 1958 this wreck happened, I'll go and retrieve the article from the Library when I go next week.

 

Thanks,

Dave Rutan
