From the late 1950s, this railroad operated its service from Lackawanna Terminal in Hoboken. Trustee Duryee served in that role from 1942 to circa 1954 (successor was Horace F. Banta.)

Notes Established in 1856, it was branch line of the Erie Railroad since 1896. Prior to 1958 it would have run to Erie's terminal in Jersey City. From 1958 it would have run to the Lackawanna Terminal in Hoboken as the Erie and D.L.& W. began to consolidate passenger operations out of Hoboken. It continued as part of the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad after the 1960 merger and would become the Pascack Valley line of New Jersey Transit that operates from Hoboken Terminal.

Confusingly, this line was called New Jersey & New York Railroad in earlier years as well as the New York & Jersey Railroad.
