From Ocean County, Four Centuries in the Making, by Pauline S. Miller:

In 1871, Whiting sold some lands to the New Jersey Southern Railroad Co. ...Known as Whiting Junction, this land became the railroad hub for the central section of New Jersey.

The station served three railroads. The east-west rail line was Pennsy's Philadelphia & Long Branch RR. The north-south line was CRRNJ's Southern Div. Running to the southeast was the Tuckerton RR. The books "Trail of the Blue Comet" and John Brinckmann's "The Tuckerton Railroad" show the original and modified track plans of the junction.
