Nassau Tower  Contributor's Pick!       
Enlarged from a contact print of a 1/2 127 frame - NASSAU was only 4 yrs old in this shot. It had a35-lever US&S Model 14 electro-pneumatic machine with 21 working levers and controlled brand new 45mph crossover turnouts. The tower and plant were rebuilt as part of a World War 2 initiative to replace mechanical towers, here replacing one built in 1900. There is a full five-track crossover with the Princeton Branch entering from the south before turning into the No 5 track. There is also a No 6 track for storing the Dinky.
