The Salisbury Mills–Cornwall station, on the Metro-North Railroad Port Jervis Line, is in the Town of Cornwall in Orange County, New York. Travel time from there to Hoboken Terminal, 55.4 miles (89.2 km) away, is about one hour and 20 minutes.

The single track station is located along the former Erie Railroad Graham Line immediately north of the Moodna Viaduct, with direct access from NY 94. A recent renovation has expanded the station's parking lot, lengthened the platform canopy, added new lighting, and added a mini high-level platform for wheelchair access to trains. Parking fees are charged on weekdays, with both permit and metered spaces available.

The station also serves passengers from Newburgh, Washingtonville and other surrounding communities. For these passengers, the Port Jervis Line can be a more convenient and less expensive trip to lower Manhattan destinations than using the Metro-North Newburgh–Beacon Ferry (operated by NY Waterway) to the Hudson Line at Beacon.

Transfers are possible at Secaucus Junction for Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains to New York Penn Station, Newark Penn Station, and Newark Liberty International Airport. At Hoboken there are connections to Port Authority Trans Hudson trains.
