Lackawanna Terminal Inside

Recently, these photos were taken inside and around Hoboken's Lackawanna Terminal.  The terminal is used by New Jersey Transit, and efforts are being made to restore it.  Once renowned as the most modern station in the nation, Lackawanna Terminal is a reminder of the glory days of railroading.
