LV Phillipsburg, NJ station?

Where was the LV Phillipsburg, NJ station located and what did it look like? Because the LV main curved away from the CNJ crossing into NJ and away from Union Station (CNJ/DL&W) so Union Station obviously never served the LV.

A user on flickr posted an old pic showing the LV station:

The 3 story mansard roofed building was the LV's station. There are couple more pics of the building in Ralph Heiss' The Lehigh Valley Railroad Across New Jersey. According to Mr. Heiss, the station was closed in 1935 and demolished in 1938.
