Among the facilities required on the New York Terminal Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad was the railroad company's telephone and telegraph service. The line for this purpose forms an extension of the New York-Philadelphia main line from its point of intersection with the Terminal Division at the east side of the Passaic River, near Newark, N.J., and consists of pole line (Fig. 1) along the right of way across a continuous 5-mile stretch of sem-tidal meadow swamp land, known as the "Hackensack Meadows," to the tunnel portal at Bergen Hil, the Hackensack River being crossed midway of the section.
