But I was confused when I looked at the linked site, thinking "Lower Boonton" referred to the eastern part of the old DLW Boonton line which is now (since 1963) used to connect Hoboken to the former Erie main heading west in Paterson. Then I realized what he calls "Lower Boonton" I call the NY&GL (New York & Greenwood Lake), (part of the Erie), which served as the eastern end of the DLW Boonton line from 1963 - 2002.
I especially like the turkeys.
PS. And I do know part of the NYGL, Montclair to Mountain View, is still part of the NJT "Boonton" line.
