Lonely little Gillette

Looooonely train.

The Gillette Station is, as far as I can tell, one of two stations on the Morris & Essex Gladstone branch that doesn’t actually have any kind of a depot. (Stirling is the other one, according to Wikipedia.) There’s just a tiny little bus shelter, which now has ticket vending machines crammed into it, so it can only protect maybe two or three people from inclement weather.

When I visited the station on Sunday afternoon (Thanksgiving weekend), there were ZERO cars in the parking lot. I watched two trains go by— one going into New York, one coming back out— and nobody boarded or disembarked either one.

It’s a very lonely station.
