Good Morning All,
I have vague memories of the last steam engines that ran to Ocean City, N.J. in the 50s. My grandfather had a home on Ocean Ave. between 3rd and 4th sts. I used to walk, as I remember, with my father or grandfather, down4th st toward the bay for about 3 or 4 blocks to the tracks. Occasionally there would be and engine sitting there. I seem to remember the engine was usually a 4-4-2. Now......what I would like to know is about any engine turning and/or service facilities in Ocean City and their location. I know that the main passenger station was at 9th St. I seem to remember my father saying something about"engine facitilies" being up toward the north (Gardens) end of the island. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
