 The station at Lyons replaced a earlier station named Bernardsville station. For 8 years the last stop on what would become the DL&W.

Where does this information come from, frank?
 
Lyons is technically part of Basking Ridge, NJ, and there is a station at Bernardsville proper, so I am at a loss to understand how it replaced an earlier station named Bernardsville.
 
And "For 8 years the last stop on what would become the DL&W." The railroad was built to Bernardsville Station in 1872, and this from http://www.longhillnj.info/lht/gladston.htm -
 
"The first train on the West Line ran from Basking Ridge to Summit on December 23, 1871 (and from Bernardsville a month later, on January 29, 1872). The West Line did not extend beyond Bernardsville (until 1890)."
 
If that is what you mean by "For 8 years the last stop on what would become the DL&W." , then you mean Bernardsville, and NOT Lyons, which are separated by a station in between (Basking Ridge).
