Walnut Street is the second or fifth (depending the station of origin) of six stops that are in Montclair along the Montclair Branch section of the Montclair-Boonton line. It gets its name from the street that crosses the railroad tracks next to the station. It has a farmers' market in its parking lot during from the summer to the early fall. The station has a restaurant, the "Erie Saloon" in the station house.
Built in 1873 by the Montclair Railway, the station was the Erie Railroad's main station in Montclair. The station was formerly known as Erie Plaza. It is located at the corner of Walnut Street and Depot Square, and is in the Walnut street business district. In 1953, the current building was erected and the old station was demolished. In 1973 a freight train derailed at the station. The Montclair Connection, which merged the Montclair Branch and the Boonton Line, is a few streets after the station.
