Hackettstown had a wood passenger station, which survived at least until 1966. A three stall brick engine house with a 54' turntable was torn down prior to 1917. There was a stock yard opposite the station as well as a freight station with a separate agent. Track scales were removed between 1902-17. Nearby industries included Coal, feed mill bulk oil, lumber dealers. The original roundhouse burned down December 21, 1857.

New Jersey Transit extended service on the Boonton Line 8.9 miles from Netcong to Hackettstown on October 31, 1994. Although plans of extending passenger service to Washington and beyond have been expressed, nothing much has been done to my knowledge.
