Passaic Junction is a rail yard owned by New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway along the border of Elmwood Park and Saddle Brook in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States.[2][3] The yard is also known by its telegraph call 'PC'. In the late 19th century, this area had been known as Coalburg Junction. The yard has a connection to and is the official interchange location with Norfolk Southern. Used as a customer car storage yard but has been surrounded by a few small industries. A team track is also located here.

At the west end of the yard beyond the Bergen County Line overhead crossing is Passaic Branch junction.
