Correction. There was a land connection SE to the New York, New Haven and Concord RR freight yard next door. Another web site of interest is: http://members.trainweb.com/bedt/indloco/crrnjbxt.html See also http://www.port-kelsey.com/?p=70

Not sure about the image that Trevor shows - looks like the model superimposed on an old photo. If so shows how good Tim Warris' modeling is.

Fascinating prototype that closed in 1961.

STEAM OPERATED RAILWAYS IN RECENT TIMES
The Crab Apple and Orchard Egyptian Railway in Illinois was steam operated as a common carrier right up until the mid 1980’s. Duluth and North Eastern an operated into the early 1960s with  5 venerable steamers while the Buffalo Creek and Gauley railroad in West Virginia was also operated by steam into the mid 1960’s.

STEAM OPERATED RAILWAYS IN RECENT TIMES
The Mississipian and  Reader Railroads were also  steam operated into the 1960’s but Union Steel instead of scrapping some ex Grand Trunk Western 0-8-0’s operated these engines into the 1980’s
London Transport continued to use 0-6-0 tanks (of the Hornby 3F type?) until 1972 or 1973 shunting Underground stock I think through washbays etc.
I am of the belief that an Eastern European city has had a steam operated commuter service as recently as 2010. Also the Harz system in Eastern Germany is operated by. steam locomotives
So a late model car and Steam Engines can be photographed together and there is a prototype for it!

MAINLINE RAILWAY VERY CLOSE TO ROAD TRAFFIC
There are of course many examples of street running of railways in the world but an example of a mainline railway running very close to a road less protective fencing etc exists in Guelph Ontario in Kent St. In fact Kent Street is split by the railway. GO Commuter and VIA Passenger trains also use this line.
You can see this  at http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=35815

RAILWAYS ENDING IN A LOOP
The New York and Long Branch, now New Jersey Transit's North Jersey Coast Line, ends at a loop with a yard in the middle of it. It is a model railroader's dream! The North Jersey Rappenfieldid Transit Company (service ended 1930) was a trolley company. The line parallelled the Erie, climbed a very steep grade, swung to the right to cross the Erie tracks via a through truss bridge then a steep grade down the other side back to grade level. The grade was somewhere around 6% (a guess)
