Lincoln Park is a New Jersey Transit station in Lincoln Park, New Jersey along the Montclair-Boonton Line.[3] The current station was built by the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad as a Type W-103 structure in 1905 near the overpass of Comly Road.[4]

Station[edit]

The station features a parking lot on both sides, and a waiting room with a bathroom.[3] The station also has a pedestrian crossing with two railroad crossing signs that each have two yellow lights which always blink. The station has two tracks that run through, although only one of those tracks are used for passenger service. Lincoln Park has a roughly 1 mile long siding that runs right through the station that is dispatcher controlled. It used to be used for meets before midday service was discontinued, and no longer sees service by revenue trains.
