Looking back to June 2011 ... 

Digging thru some pictures of the Huber Breaker.   Going back to the Summer of 2011.  Notice the sign - FUTURE SITE OF MINERS MEMORIAL  HuberBreaker.org.   Well we got the memorial but the breaker is torn down.   

Glad I took all the pictures of the Huber that I did over the years.

And we can not forget ...

  • Behind the Breaker was a huge yard owned by the CNJ
  • There was also a Car Shop and Engine Terminal
  • Only a few traces of the CNJ remain
