The Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Company (DL&W or Lackawanna Railroad) was a U.S. Class 1 railroad that connected Buffalo, New York, and Hoboken, New Jersey, a distance of about 400 miles (640 km). Incorporated in 1853, the DL&W was profitable during the first two decades of the twentieth century, but its margins were gradually hurt by declining traffic in coal, competition from trucks, and high New Jersey taxes. In 1960, the DL&W merged with rival Erie Railroad to form the Erie Lackawanna Railroad.

If other coal than that I sell
For reasons that I cannot tell,
Usurps the place that mine should take
In spite of prices that I make,
And seem to think its come to stay
I hand you means to "mend your way,"
