As of next Monday I will be on tour.
Reportedly the bridge swayed severely, scaring everyone and requiring the railroad to replace it soon after it was built. Two massive stone arches were built to contain the river and the road, and then car loads of dirt were dumped over the trestle to form a fill the original bridge is buried in the fill.
I have memories of the arches causing ice to back up in the spring, and of the borough workers attacking the ice with backhoes to try and keep it moving.
Railroad Station High Bridge was an important railroad town for most of its history. In the picture you can see two tracks. The Taylor Wharton Iron works was formed inpreceded by the Taylor Iron works which dates back to It closed inand this trestle is how ore cars were delivered to the facility.
I believe the trestle has been removed. I walked across this trestle several times - it was one way to get home from school. I saw a switch engine on it once, right after we moved there - they may have been removing a couple of cars or something from the iron works.
When the plant closed inhard times were visited on High Bridge, and when we moved there in the town still had a hardscrabble aspect to it. They kept a fine a little store, and we would always stop there to buy a snack on the way home from school.
I hope it is still there Taylor Hose Company High Bridge had two fire stations. This is the original station. The volunteer fire department was made up of people who worked nearby and could get their in hurry when summoned by the enormous fog horn.
The fire station also contained a busy bar, so it was a combination of "Rescue Heroes" and "Cheers". They probably drank to forget the horrible auto accidents that occupied most of their runs.
When we lived in Hunterdon County it seemed to be awash in vehicular carnage. There was a mangled car in the Hunterdon County Democrat every week. They built this station north of the High Bridge Branch Line tracks to prevent a train from blocking a rescue.
Of course, the railroad abandoned the tracks about ten minutes after they completed this station, but who knew? The fire department held an Easter Egg hunt that I can remember here.
They really were the core of the social life of the city. Its interior was decorated with the kind of positive social murals in vogue at the time.
The tellers sat behind ornate metal gates with marble countertops. Mom and Dad got their mortgage there. I understand its a wine shop now, but at least they check ID which is more than most mortgage brokers did over the past few years The Bars High Bridge was a drinking town, there is no doubt about that.
We would go in these bars to drop off papers and play the video game - Missile Command comes to mind. The bars were located near the corner of Bridge Street and Main Street. I remember in I was delivering papers and this guy stumbled out of the bar and got in his Buick.
Taped to the back window of the Buick was this photocopied picture of Mickey Mouse giving the finger, and the caption read "Hey Iran! That image really shocked me at the time hey - I was The guys who hung around in those bars looked like the drinking buddies in the Bill Murray film "Groundhog Day".
Anyway, they were always nice to me. High Bridge had a substantial downtown population, and there was a laundromat to the left of the building to serve them.

Alien () is 20th Century Fox's extremely suspenseful, space science-fiction horror film about a menacing, unstoppable, carnivorous, stowaway, hermaphroditic Demon beast.
The grisly, claustrophobic, action-oriented film without a lot of dialogue contains some very suspenseful, tension-filled. High Bridge was an important railroad town for most of its history. In the picture you can see two tracks. The track nearest the station was the Raritan Branch of the CNJ, and it went to Easton and on into Pennsylvania as far as Wilkes-Barre.
