Significance: The Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad (DL&W) Multiple Unit Light Inspection Shop (MU Shed) contributes to the Old Main DL&W Railroad Historic District which is significant for its associations with suburbanization, commuter and passenger traffic, freight traffic, engineering and architecture. The MU Shed, built in 1930 when the DL&W converted the railroad from steam to electric power, provided for the routine inspection and maintenance of MU train cars and is significant as a representative of the early electrification of the DL&W.
