    Woo hoo! You saved the best for last! Thanks for the great shots; thanks for the whole Tuesday Tour Panorama Project; thanks for a perfect Christmas present. How clever of you to have timed it, so far in advance, to work out this way.

    I am assuming that you took those pigeons back to White Plains with you after your photo shoot.

    The Poughkeepsie station and the former White Plains station were very close in appearance to each other, so you can still get a glimpse of what used to be in white plains.

    In the 1979 photo you will notice most of the train on the left were the D&H cars off the Adirondack that ran for a few years in Conrail commuter service, these cars included a couple of tavern lounges for bar car service (yes, the upper Hudson had bar cars), the former Lackawanna Phoebe Snow cars roamed here as well after the Long Island transferred them from there parlor car service to the MTA metro region/Conrail operations. (Hence how MNR wound up with the 2 former observation cars).

    Great photo’s as always.

    Well, I guess it’s time for you head to Jersey and start touring the stations like Ho-Ho-kus, or become MNR’s or Amtrak’s communications director and get paid to this.

    Happy New Year.. and looking forward to what is next from you.

    I’ve loved the architecture of the Poughkeepsie train station since I moved here in 1989. Too bad the Route 9 highway now obscures the frontage. I’m so happy I learned through your site who the architects were. I hadn’t known of Warren and Wetmore prior to this but I’ll now check out more about them.
