This extensive history of the Erie Railroad’s Greenwood Lake Division covers everything from the railroad's construction as the Montclair Railway in the 1870s through its subsequent reorganizations as the Montclair & Greenwood Lake Railway and later the New York & Greenwood Lake Railway. The line’s eventual acquisition by the Erie gives way to the Erie Lackawanna merger, Conrail, and the line’s current use by NJ Transit. With over 100 pages of text supplemented by a plethora of historic black & white and color photos and reproduced documents, this is the definitive story of rail service along a scenic New Jersey route.
