USA : The Merci Train : WeehawkenUpdated : June 15, 2015
The "Magellan" docked at the "Erie Railroad" pier north H at Weehawken, New Jersey.
You can see the "Erie" location on the map below just south of the "Weehawken".
In 1949 there were huge railroad yards at Weehawken, and huge ferries / barges to carry freight and passenger cars across the river Hudson to Manhatten.
These yards are now history, but you can see from the pictures below how it looked like around 1949 when the Merci boxcars were loaded onto US-flat-cars on the pier.
If you have, or know of any new pictures
