I usually frown on commerical postings, but I wanted to let everyone know a new book featuring the NH's electrification and the NYW&B will be available soon... I've been working on this book for the last year or so with my friends, and it's to be released soon.

Sounds like a great book. I will have to pre-order it soon. Will there be any detailed maps of the NH and NY,W&B interlockings/connections in the bronx? I can never find maps (or any books) on this area so the book should be just what I am looking for.

Hi Warren,

Yes, there are many detailed maps of track and interlockings on the New Haven and the NYW&B in the Bronx. West Farms Junction is in there for sure. I also have Larchmont Junction, Mamaroneck, Harrison, and others. Also a mainline track diagram for the NYW&B. Various diagrams of the NH including Van Nest and Port Chester.

Quick FYI; I put a "shadow" topic of this in the NYS and Books forum in case anyone looks there. I did this by moving it there, and then moving it back to NH.
