3: March 1966; Form RC.

4: April 1966: Form CRM-HB. This ticket is old stock apparently available to the station agents at the Hoboken ticket windows as it one from 1960 or earlier stating Erie Railroad Company at the top. Text about restrictions and holidays varies from the other three. See image with comparison of the March and April tickets.

Erie Railroad was used up to the October 1960 when it merged with the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad to become the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad Co. This name was used from October 1960 to circa April 1968 when it was re-named the Erie Lackawanna Railway Co.
