The first map shows where the spur to Pilgrim State diverged from the Main Line, just west of the old Pineaire station. Note also the spur to Edgewood State Hospital about a half mile west. The second map shows the ROW of the spur on the Hospital grounds.
Big John contributed the following pictures and tickets
David Huber contributed the following photos and captions from a walk he took along the ROW a while back.
This photo is of the power plant. The tracks are elevated

building under the conveyer belt
This is a view from the tracks looking down under the
conveyer belt to the
end of the line
The next two photos are of the abandoned passenger
station. The second one clearly
shows the tracks
