Sending Postcards from the Harlem Line (Part 7) Train History Photos

Admit it, readers – somewhere in the back of your head you were wondering when I’d get around to showing you more railroad-themed postcards. My postcard collecting addiction has been well documented, and roughly every other month I do a new post full of my newly acquired cards. Today’s lineup includes Amenia, one of the abandoned Upper Harlem stations, and Towners, another abandoned station. There are also a few cards of station buildings still around today, like Katonah, Bedford Hills, and Scarsdale.

Again, I must sincerely thank Steve Swirsky for his wonderful contributions to our extensive collection of postcards. The Dover Plains, Towners, and White Plains cards are all from his collection.

  • Cool. One of those Lionel-inspiration S motors at White Plains, and four-quadrant crossing protection the old-fashioned way at Mt. Kisco.

  • Cool postcards as I am a postcard nut! I used to work for Metro North years ago…. Love the Harlem & Hudson lines…

  • Bob:

    Cool postcards. I like the Valhalla one pre-parkway. I think the building on the left foreground was the old family store before they moved next to the North White Plains yard (as a little kid I thought it was so cool that the rail siding in NWP went through the building). The building on the right of course is the station.
