Depnding on which computer is file is saved on / displayed on, the "newline" might differ.
Your script hints that you are running on windows, therefore \r\n should work.

$newline ='\r\n'; // change if Unix
$data1="a|b|c|".$newline."d|e|f";
file_put_contents('c:\\'.$fn.'.txt',$data1 , FILE_APPEND);

I would guess so
$newline ='\r\n'; // change if Unix
$data1="$a|$b|$c|$newline$d|$e|$f";
$debug=true; // easy to change
if ($debug) { echo "** string is[$data1] **";}; // html should display on several lines
file_put_contents('c:\\'.$fn.'.txt',$data1 , FILE_APPEND);

Not sure I understand clearly.
What is the value of $a?
The value of $b?
Can you paste the lines of code which generate $a? same for $b and $c
