Remarks & Notes 
Lackawanna Freight House on a Spring morning

Lackawanna freight house is located at Boonton New Jersey off Morris Avenue and served the Lackawanna Railroad and later the Erie Lackawanna Railroad. The 100 year old plus structure is no longer an active freight house, but the exterior has been recently renovated and repainted to its original look. The interior has been renovated to a beautiful office working space. Although no longer active, the freight house still gets equipment moves time to time as shown from this picture from New Jersey Transit crew or a Norfolk Southern H0-2 crew for URHS which is headquartered just behind the freight house and operates off many of the yard tracks. Currently New Jersey Transit owns all tracks at the yard , but are leased to the United Railroad Historical Society for there private use. Engine shown at freight house is a New Jersey Transit (formerly New York Central) GP40 4303 drilling out of yard two New York Central passenger cars.
