    City Subway-Newark Light Rail

    Newark City Subway


    The PCC's ended their service on 8/24/01on the City Subway.  On 8/27/01 the new Light Rail low floor cars took over operation. Luckily I was there to witness the change over. 

    The Newark system has seen other changes as well. The loop at Franklin Ave has been removed. Franklin Ave. is now called Branch Brook Park. The line itself has been extended north one mile with 2 new stations. This extension also leads to the new maintenance facility. This facility replaces the shops for the PCC's at Penn Station. There is another extension that is opened that links Newark Penn Station with Newark Broad St station along the riverfront. Weekdays the two lines are operated separately with transfers at the outbound platforms at Newark Penn Station. Evenings, and weekends there the lines are interlinked. NJT is now dropping the "City Subway" name in favor of Newark Light Rail for the entire network. A move, I do not like.

    I have divided the City Subway & Light Rail by Station. Please enjoy the photos.
