    Most of the station shots with the Budd Cars/and the SPV-2000 is Pawling, as well as the work train shot with the Budd cars passing, the 3rd from the last shot would be around 1981-83 prior to work even starting on electrification. And the shot after the train in the yard with the blue flag is Brewster (pre-electrification and high level platforms)

    This picture is taken from Mount Kisco, I can tell by the white church in the background.

    Wow, just nice pictures. I knew really knew what the Kisco Train Station was like before Metro North.

    I bet they didn’t have to worry about watching the gap at that station.

    Emily, keep doing what you are doing. I am not a line buff but I am an aerial photographer so I am a transportation (air) buff.
    But I just have to tell you that your photos on this page are awesome.
    I can feel like I’m on or near that train. So cool. So gnarley. Thanks so much.

    Metro-North has locomotives painted up like the old last-generation New Haven Railroad trains, mostly on the New Haven Line. They ought to do the same thing on the Harlem and Hudson Lines by decorating trains in New York Central colors and Port Jervis(and maybe Pascack Valley) Line trains in Erie Railroad colors.

    These are great shots. Would it be possible for me to use one of them for a book I am writing about my late father, who used to live in Westchester County. I would like to add some local color by putting in the photo of the train in Mt. Kisco. Please let me hear from you at your earliest convenience. My email address is franksmith76@gmail.com and my phone number is 770-241-3946. Thanks!
