The Rahway Valley Railroad
crossed Faitoute Avenue (MP 0.85) in Kenilworth at
grade. At one time Faitoute Avenue was the main thoroughfare
between Aldene (a section of Roselle Park) and New Orange
(later renamed Kenilworth in 1905). Later S. Michigan Ave.
took that distinction after it was put through. Faitoute Ave.
was severed with the construction of the Garden State Parkway
and is now, more or less, a residential side street in two
disconnected segments. The RV crossed the southern segment of
Faitoute Ave., near the Michigan Ave. intersection.
For a short
period of time this crossing was a scheduled stop for
passenger trains of the New Orange Four Junction Railroad. By
1903 the Faitoute Ave. stop was replaced by the flag stop at
Michigan Ave. grade crossing.
