    I have to admit that when I read “self-propelled vehicles” my first image was of a handcar and I couldn’t imagine them ever being in use for passenger service! But a little Googling (and a little thinking) led me to the “seldom-powered vehicles” you’re referring to: the Budd SPV 2000.

    Keep up the great work on the Mighty Hudson line.

      RDC’s and SPV’s ran between POK and Croton-Harmon as shuttles
      with a cross-platform transfer at Harmon to a semi-express to GCT.
      Sometimes to all stop locals to GCT as well.

    Considering New Hamburg’s location, obviously it was an easy reopening candidate. It’s still 8.5 track miles to Poughkeepsie (which I’d like to see bridged with a park and ride at Route 113 and IBM.

    At one time in the past,New Hamburg had a movable bridge as well,
    Signal Station-54(BU) controled the span,a hinged lift type.
    the bridge spanned Wappinger’s Creek.
    Believe it was straight railed in the ’70’s
