From the classic days of the DL&W (Delay, Linger and Wait). This was the train that used to run from the Lackawanna Station (where Gail and I got married) back in the 1940s, when my mother and grandmother would travel to New York.

Henry Ford Museum – Lackawanna Commuter Train Model
electric train sets
Image by roger4336
A model of the Lackawanna Railroad commuter train set, in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. These electric train sets were introduced in 1928, and were still in use in the 1950s and 1960s. This is how my father commuted to his work in New York City, and how I went to New York (including summer jobs in the city).

We took one of these trains (probably 6 or 8 cars) from Millburn, Maplewood, or Short Hills station to Hoboken. To reach New York City, you took the Hudson Tubes (later PATH – Port Authority Trans-Hudson). In the 1950s, there were also ferries from Hoboken to Lower Manhattan.
