Fallen Flag Railroads of New Jersey

Baltimore and Ohio Railroad:
The Baltimore and Ohio trackage in New Jersey consisted of a 5.5 mile segment, which ran from Cranford Jct. on the Central Railroad of New Jersey to Arthur Kill and on to Staten Island, NY. B&O trains reached this isolated property by trackage rights over the Reading Co. from Philadelphia, PA, to Bound Brook, NJ, then CNJ to Cranford Jct. The Lehigh Valley RR also maintained an interchange with SIRT at Cranford. Though strictly a freight operation in New Jersey, SIRT ran an urban style passenger rapid transit system on Staten Island which exists today under New York City's MTA
