Re: New York, Westchester & Boston NYW&B Main Thread

I second that. I've searched for long time and never come up with any pictures of Casanova Station, only the old estate house from which the street and station were named.

Re: Catenary Support Poles - NYNH&H vs PRR

There was a change in milling technology after the First World War. I beams or W sections of different sizes and weights became readily available. Also advances in welding technology occurred. At the beginning of the Twentieth Century repetitive member and composite structures (usually riveted) were...

New Haven article – Wire Train Operations

For those interested, the 2015 Holiday addition of Classic Trains has a reprint of a 1952 Trains and Travel article concerning a typical day on the New Haven’s wire train. Great photos too.

New Haven Service to the South

What were the named New Haven trains that went to Florida and the South? Which car types would venture into the southern states? I’m assuming the New Haven cars would connect with either the RF&P or Southern at Washington’s Union Station.

Re: NYW&B Highbrook Ave Bridge Saved

I’m a little late on this one, but three cheers for historical preservation. Hopefully it will be as successful as New York’s High Line.

New York Central RS-3 under PRR wire

Here pictured is a New York Central Railroad RS-3 (early 1960’s) on the Pennsylvania’s Passaic & Harsimus Cove Line. Where did the NYC connect with this line and what was the purpose for this connection? The third rails to the right provided power to the adjacent Hudson & Manhattan (PATH).

Re: EP5 Electric Locomotives - Jets

Peter Cooper Hewitt was one of the first to explore the concept of a mercury rectifier. In 1906, GE tested the usage of a rectifier for the Paul Smith Railway. The seven mile railway served a popular resort of the same name in the New York Adirondacks. The experimental rectifier technology at the ti...

Re: Exterior detail differences, EP-4 and EF-3

Just following up on my minutia Since the EP-4 was a forerunner of sorts to the EF-3, it’s possible that GE engineers and New Haven Engineering staff made some modifications to EF-3 design, besides the mechanical requirements for freight operations. On EF-3 the cab roof length and door and roof acce...

Front End Detail for Locos and Freight Cars

What were these cupped details or indentations shown on the pictured New Haven locomotives and freight cars used for? I’ve also seen them on the locos of other railroads, including the NYC. Where these details used for shop maintenance purposes?

Re: Harlem River Line – Casanova Station

Thanks Statkowski! The link to valuation map is very informative. It appears that the station only had a NYC Subway style exit gate. I don’t know how ticketing was done from this station by both the NH and the NYW&B, if this was done at all. The designation ‘FP’ on this map represents what type of s...
