Are there any sections of the old Erie mainline between Hoboken or Jersey City to Port Jervis or beyond that are used for regular commuter service.I know one of the lines(Metro North) goes to Port Jervis, but is it on the old Erie line ?

Some is, some isn't, would have to look over some maps to tell what is what, and that bars any Erie-era line relocations or improvements. Commuter service ends at Port Jervis.

Port Jervis service is actually provided by NJTransit under a contract with Metro North. You will get a ton of replies if you post your question on the NJTransit forum.

For starters, outbound NJT Bergen County line trains use the Erie main line from http://tinyurl.com/cyvck3 to http://tinyurl.com/cc8g5q . (Switch to "aerial" and zoom out to get oriented.) NJT "Main Line" trains use the Erie main line from just south of Paterson http://tinyurl.com/ckhopd north to the state line and beyond; if you want details, speak up.
