Lehigh Valley Track Profiles

What I hope to present is a study of ROW characteristics for the Lehigh Valley mainline in New Jersey. In the absence of owning a set of company diagrams, I will attempt to reconstruct the work from a set recent Conrail 'Lehigh Line' profiles. Vertical and horizontal alignments will, for the most part, reflect what existed under Lehigh Valley ownership.

Mainline track reduction programs were started under LV management and continued under Conrail. I would like to portray the mainline as it was when it was still double track between Newark and Phillipsburg, circa late 1950's.

Visitors who might have information on track configuration or know of source references are asked to contact me at:
