    New Jersey Transit released schedule changes Friday to accommodate this summer's extensive repair work at New York's Penn Station that is aimed at replacing aging parts and equipment that contributed to two recent derailments and numerous other failures. 
    Commuters from towns due west of Manhattan, as far as Hackettstown, will bear most of the pain. Rail lines serving those areas will be diverted to Hoboken, where commuters will transfer to New York Waterway ferries or trains operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
    There is an exception: Four trains on the Morristown Line originating in Hackettstown that arrive in New York before 7 a.m. will be spared the Hoboken diversion. Trains that normally would arrive in New York after 7 a.m. will be diverted.

    Wait are all tickets to Hoboken being cross honored? Or only tickets from Morris & Essex Lines trains?

    Four trains originating in Hackettstown going to New York will be spared the Hoboken Division? I imagine those trains will be crush loaded. As I said in another post, Lakeland had better batten down the hatches....
