    Actually I am really glad you did a whole study looks this. I love ephemeral stations — and captive ones. Not sure the platforms are still there at Manhattan Transfer, but I remember rolling past them on Amtrak and NJDOT trains in the early 70s.

    In the early years of Metro North,they had a small fleet of TTX Flat cars used as platform
    extensions where a track was out of service for an extended time.
    Devon Transfer is built out of scaffold parts and wood.
    It would make more sense to build a permanant station at Devon
    to cut down the deadhead mileage, to/from Bridgeport -New Haven for service/fuel.

    Interesting story. Thank you for sharing it.

    The transformers on the catenary bridge (see pictures #8, #12, #16) seem very old, possibly even original. Would anyone know how old they are?

    Trivia note: The American Bridge Co. site in Trenton, NJ, is now the site of the Waterfront Park baseball stadium, home of the minor league team, the Trenton Thunder. One old building was saved and rebuilt and how houses a restaurant/nightclub.

    Thanks for this article. As a resident of Milford, I was quite confused. It looks like a regular station, but there is no way to access it from the road and was wondering what the deal was. Now I know.
