The original railroad to Lodi was the Lodi Branch Railroad, which ran off the NJ&NY (Erie) at Hasbrouck Heights.

Much of the sunken ROW remains on the West side of Rt 17 (you can definitely see the old 'cut' right across from the Hilton)to Lodi between Garibaldi Ave and MacArthur Ave ending where the NYS&W 'took over' (with its route up to Hackensack) in the industrial park just S of Garibaldi @ Mill St. (the curve away from the NYS&W going East is still quite visible along the fence line. From that point the line went on into Lodi, crossing Main St where the ShopRite is now. The station used to be on the East side of Main, across from what is now the South Entrance of ShopRite.
The line served many many factories in Lodi where the Municipal Center and ShopRite and the Bank are now, and had several sidings, even one that crossed Saddle River just above Arnot St. Bridge. to I believe, a power plant.
