  1. Didn’t the trains run as far as Seaside Height? I remember the tracks in the 50s running where 35 South is now. Trains stopped running years before I think.

    According to period maps, the deteriorating red building on Joline Avenue is on the opposite side of the tracks from where the NY&LB Branchport station was located. I would not have included that building without some proof it was part of the station complex.

    The first railroad providing service to Long Branch in 1860 was the Raritan & Delaware Bay Railroad which became the NJ Southern Railroad. The spur reaching Long Branch came in from Eatontown.

    I lived at 1 Riverdale Ave in Monmouth Beach. When I was a child in the 1950s my Dad used to come down on the Jersey Central from Newark and he would get off at North Long Branch and walk home. The train did not stop in 1945.

    Really interesting photos. I lived at the shore for 35 years and commuted by the NY & LB RR for 10 years. Thanks for posting.

    The earliest photo of the North Long Branch station is so different from all the others, so I wondered if it burned and was then rebuilt. My 3rd cousin in PA emailed me the same photo of the original station. It was a tintype and backward. After I posted to facebook, someone fixed it for me.
