Mount Tabor is a New Jersey Transit station in Denville, New Jersey along the Morristown Line just west of the small community of Mount Tabor in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey. The station consists of one side platform and 48 parking spaces for commuters. One of these parking spaces is handicapped-accessible. The station sees limited service on a daily basis.
The first station at Mount Tabor was originally built by the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad on August 19, 1881 under the supervision of a man from Newark named John Scannell. The station depot was razed on June 15, 1971 after falling into a state of disrepair.
The station has two tracks with a low-level side platform on Track 1. Access from the platform to Track 2 is provided via a walkway over the tracks, though not all trains stop at this station.
