Hi all,
 
I would like to know if DL&W trains #5 and #6 ran between Hoboken and Buffalo or did they run between New York and Buffalo in the mid to late 1940s?
 
Thank you very much.

Hi Terry,
 
The DL&W had no direct trackage in to NYC. Their eastern-most terminus was Hoboken, NJ. Having said that, Manhattan is directly across the Hudson River, and folks could be ferried across to/from New York City.
 
Hope this helps!

The DL&W had trains 5 and 6 between Hoboken and Buffalo. Train 5 left Hoboken at 3:40 pm and arrived in Buffalo at 1:10 am according to the 8/1/48 DL&W PTT.  Train 6 left Buffalo at 8:45 am and arrived at Hoboken at 5:15 pm.  
 
Number 5 was named the Chicagoan as it connected with NKP and NYC (via subsidiary Canada Southern to Detroit (NYC 33) as well a 2nd train on the Lake Shore route (NYC 19)) trains to Chicago in Buffalo as well as with an NYC train for St. Louis (NYC 11) and an NYC/TH&B/CP train (NYC 371) for Toronto.  
 
Eastward train 6 was the "Diesel Powered" Lackawanna Limited.
 
Hope this helps,
