The Zen of Ho-Ho-Kus Station

A Railfan Paradise in the mountains of New Jersey

Nestled in the picturesque Bergen County in Northeastern New Jersey, Ho-Ho-Kus station is a railfan's paradise. This station services both Main Line and Bergen County Line NJ Transit customers traveling to Suffern, NY or Hoboken NJ. Even express trains headed to Port Jervis, NY can be seen blasting through the station. The ride up to the station is smooth and scenic, with breathtaking views of the mountains. The station building, constructed in 1952, is small but cozy, more like a rest area than a full-service station. There are no amenities around, just three tracks - one northbound, one southbound, and a middle express track. Rush hour is bustling with rail activity, which is a sight to behold. And when there are no trains, the station is peaceful, with only the sounds of nature. Don't miss out on the chance to witness the magic of Ho-Ho-Kus station.
