    It was at Croton Falls that I received my very first haircut, in the old station that is now a Liquor store. That is the building right next to the tracks. I was born and raised just a few miles from there.

    During the planning of the Electrification, Croton Falls was very nearly eliminated all together because of the small amount of land for platforms and no parking for commuters.

    I don’t remember the amount of commuters that used Croton Falls pre-electrification, but I know it was under 70 a day.

    If you ever go there again, try and go during the business hours, the bank there is right out of 1920 with the bars and big safe inside.

    I still love seeing trains cross the trestle over RT 22 just north of the station.

    And in Millerton, where is our photo of the old fright house?

    Here is a link to the 1899 USGS maps of Millerton, where you can see all 3, yes 3 railroad lines in town.

    Millerton is where the Central New England crossed the Harlem line and I have the blueprints drafted by the NYC signal dept of the signal-system at this crossing.

    Ahe there any photos of this x-ing?

    Are there any abandoned tracks still in place north of Wassiac on the Upper Harlem line ?
