In 1901-1902 the Lackawanna railroad constructed an eastward facing connection (the Stanhope Cut-Off) with the Sussex Railroad. This cut-off included a drawbridge over the Morris canal. The new connection allowed passengers to ride directly to Hoboken without change of trains at Waterloo. Netcong was called South Stanhope until being incorporated in 1894.

The new brick station opened June 14, 1903 and sported a new sign reading 'Netcong/Stanhope'.

Nearby industries: (1918): Stanhope furnace, U.S. Mineral Wool, (1933): Coal, Lumber, Feed, Ice. (1955) Netcong Coal & Lumber, Stocker Manufacturing.
