PC: New Jersey and Update

Hello again PC fans,

First, I posted another seven or so pictures to the web site tonight.
The Eastern Region, Metropolitan Region, and the GE Diesel Locomotives
Photo Galleries have all been updated.

Now a question for the list, especially the New Jersey residents:
The Eastern Region Photo Gallery now has pictures from Meadows Yard
in Kearny, and "Waverly Yard 6" in Newark. I'm guessing that there
were multiple "Waverly Yards" in New Jersey, then? According to my
1972 PC Eastern Region Employee TT, there were locations on the 
Passaic & Harsimus Branch called "WA-5", "WA=3", and "WA-6". Were
these the individual "Waverly Yards"? 

The caption text in the New Jersey Division page of the Eastern Region
Photo Gallery is all taken from the above assumptions, information
provided by the photographer, and my Eastern Region ETT. If anyone
can better explain what the track layout around Newark was, I would
appreciate it so that I can correct the captions if necessary.

Anyway, enough for one night. Enjoy the new photos!
