Is it still there? Connected to live rail? Thanks in advance for any help.

Warwick, N.Y. is where the folk-singing Roche sisters get their fan mail...

"Once you step on
you might never get off
of the commuter train
it doesn't go very far away
but just the same
it's a trip and a half..."

One of my favorite haunts of the early 70's, which looks to be about when the photo was taken.

yup, early 70s. High Iron tour w/NKP 759 out of the view to the left. I'll upload those scenes soon.

If you look at the satellite view, you can clearly make out the scar of a roundhouse/turntable south of the Jones Chemical property.

Roundhouse burned down in the late 1950's. Biggest loss was the L&HR's business car the "Warwick". It was rarely used but kept in excellent condition.

Looks like my model railroad, with 2 L&HR RS-3's and 2 C-420's.

Made many a trip to Warwick myself, sadly it was after the RS-3's left the property.

Have to go the Springdale AR now to see the LHR C420's still soldiering on!
