|After the first Aldene Station disappeared from
existance at some point in the early 20th Century, after which
the Central Railroad of New Jersey constructed a 'second'

plant of Romerovski Brothers, so the new station was relocated

closer to the RV-CNJ interchange.
CNJ inadvertently constructed the station on Rahway Valley
Railroad property, well at least one corner of it. To make
amends, the CNJ paid $1 annually in rent for the use of a

Aldene Station served as a passenger depot, amidst other
nearby CNJ train stations at Roselle Park and Cranford, as

arrangement, the Aldene Station was eventually razed. The
site is now occupied by Sun
