Talking NYC Commuter Rail Questions

Hi there, I just had a question about NYC's commuter railways, and I hope this thread can be used in the future for anyone else who may.

My question is: Does anyone know how far the LIRR, Metro-North, and NJT railways are electrified? (eg. last electrified stations) Also, what are the different modes and voltages of electrifications for each system?
Thanks! -L



ROOFS!

But those are Rapid Transit systems and not Suburban Rail systems.

Scalziand, the West Of Hudson lines are not literally all the railway lines west of the Hudson river, they are the name used to refer to the Metro-North's WOH operating division, comprising of the Port Jervis (Orange) and Pascack Valley (Purple) lines, as well as NJT's Bergen County and Main lines.
