Kearney Connection to Roseville

From Kearny Junction (MP 5.7), where there are connectors with the Northeast Corridor line at its Kearney Connection, on the north side of the line, and crossovers allowing trains to reach all NJT tracks, while the former Lackawanna line passes beneath the NEC on its way west,  three tracks wide, with an extra track (the Center Street Branch, once the PRR main) alongside, Rule 261 on Tracks 1 and 3 and current-of-traffic (Rule 251) on Track 2 (eastward), Automatic Block Signals, 25 kV 60Hz AC overhead catenary, maximum speed 79 mph for EMUs and electric-hauled passenger trains, 60 mph for other passenger trains, and 25 mph for freight trains, past a bridge over a driveway, in an embankment, a bridge over a street, a wye on the north side (the east leg is out of service) with the non-electrified freight line to Kingsland, MP 6.6, where the maximum speed drops to 55 mph for passenger trains, four bridges over north-south streets, crossovers and an abandoned station (two side platforms) at Harrison (MP 7.1), where Track 3 ends, temporarily, Tracks 1 and 2 become bi-directional, maximum speed 30 mph for passenger trains, a deck girder bridge over a north-south street, and the signaled through-truss movable bridge over the Passaic River at Broad (MP 7.7).
