Name Erie Lackawanna Railway
Details Successor name of Erie-Lackawanna Railroad. Erie Lackawanna Railway which was formed March 1, 1968 as a subsidiary of Dereco, the holding company of the Norfolk and Western Railway, which had bought the railroad. On April 1 the assets were transferred as a condition of the proposed but never consummated merger between the N&W and Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. Dereco also owned the Delaware & Hudson Railway at the time.

While the name of the company sometimes has a hyphen, Erie-Lackawanna, the name for the Railway is correct without it.
