Calverton Station 2000 Photo: Don M. Watson

The earlier 1880-era Calverton station (photo above) was constructed on the north side of the tracks and west of Edwards Avenue (see 1924 map inset below -Emery 10/57). I date this image c. 1895 as there is a private road crossing in view and later images show a low level wooden station platform and high-level express platform across what once was the private crossing. Emery's map inset states the private road was closed in 1924 and (according to Emery) a new depot was constructed on the south side of the tracks and EAST of Edwards Avenue.  (Note: Ron Ziel states 1922.) 
As this image was scanned from a stereoscope card of two images, to allow for a 3-D view when viewed thru the old viewer, and as stereoscopes were all the rage in the 1890s before actual photography became popular and Brownie cameras were available to everyone, I date this c. 1895.  

It's possible that the station was relocated to allow for the construction of the additional tracks and produce house on the former station site.  The original depot was moved to a private location.  The replacement depot years later was ALSO moved to a private location. Research: Dave Keller

This switch is about 1-3/4 miles west of Edwards Ave and is the access to the former Grumman property, now EPCAL (Enterprise Park-Calverton). 

It runs north parallel with Connecticut Ave then west on the north side of Grumman Blvd. (ex-River Rd. - see map below). Eventually it turns north to the manufacturing area.
