As far as I know, its still connected to NJT.
Let's also not forget that before late 2007, a good portion of the URHS collection that now resides in Boonton, lived in that MU yard for several years, where it was vandalized, set on fire, and lived in by a large segment of Morristown's homeless population. Believe me, I know. I helped get that stuff out of there and cleaned the place up after everything was moved to Boonton. I have pictures and video of the hospital move NJT made to get the URHS equipment out. Happened at about 2am the night they did it.
