Lackawanna R. R. To Curtail Service
Trains West of Dover - Newton - Franklin Branches
The Lackawanna Railroad was authorized by the Public
Utilities last week to eliminate seven trains west of Dover and Discontinue
passenger service between Newton and Franklin.
Elimination of the seven trains between Washington,
Phillipsburg, Dover, Stroudsburg and Netcong is designed to save the
railroad $258 a day in operating losses after April 24, when it becomes
effective. Abolition of service between Newton and Franklin, effective
April 1, was authorized to prevent operating losses of $38,000 a year.
