Roselle Park, New Jersey has always been a railroad town. The borough was once host to three rail lines (the Central Railroad of New Jersey, the Lehigh Valley Railroad, and the Rahway Valley Railroad). Local railroad historian Richard J. King has delved into his archives and assembled a detailed presentation on the railroads of Roselle Park and their impact on the borough.
King has authored two books on the Rahway Valley Railroad and is a co-owner of The Garbely Publishing Company, a publisher of railroad books. Since 2017, King has served as Treasurer of the Tri-State Railway Historical Society, where he has been instrumental in preserving the railroad history of the State of New Jersey.
