    Let’s not forget that New Rochelle was also the home of Rob and Laura Petrie.

  2. I was honored to help extend New Rochelle’s muni Wi-Fi network to the train station in ’06 or so. The station was in great shape and it was fun to bring a modern amenity to a historic train station. The New Rochelle muni Wi-Fi has been shut down, but it was great to be a part of the project.

    I went to Isaac E. Young Junior High School in New Rochelle, 1950-’53. The trolley cars were still running then, but they didn’t go ‘my way’. Boogers! New Rochelle had a significant yard, east of the station. The ‘Wire Train’ was based there and the yard was totally electrified. No roundhouse or turntable. The local freight served the Mount Vernon yard,and Wakefield yard, in conjunction with the NYC. Guess it did whatever on the Harlem River line, too, as well as serving the New Haven Trap Rock plant in Larchmont (under wire).
    One of my favorite places to visit was the New Haven’s old Pelham Manor station. It housed a huge “O-scale” model railroad. The beautiful building was demolished when the New England Thruway (I-95) came through. Thanks, feds! The model railroad was stored in a couple of express cars in the Mount Vernon yard for years.
    I hope you get a chance to document the NH Harlem River line, including its 6-track ROW.
