Scope & Content Tariff E-29. The Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Co. Joint Passenger Tariff of First-Class One-way Fares from Stations on the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western R. R. (June 10, 1918.)

Printed booklet, 8" x 11" wide, 24 pp. Holographic ink notes on cover: File Copy; Canceled by #-30 2/29/20. (Where this official document was on file is not indicated, but it would have typically been widely distributed and become part of office records for the Lackawanna, both in the New York administrative offices and at passenger traffic offices at Hoboken.)

A regulatory document issued when the railroads were under control of the U.S. Railroad Administration during World War I. See below for contination of the cover text and notes for the full text of first seven pages. PDF on file.

Hoboken does not appear in this document with its extensive listings of stations and destinations. While Hoboken was the eastern rail terminus of the D.L. & W. R.R., ticketing would carry New York as the departure or arrival station. Where New York appears as part of the Lackawanna's connections, Hoboken and New York are equivalent.
