There was someone in the railfan.net forum posted a link to a photo page showing the old dlw and lhr row,s. I was wondering if someone had decided to do something like that from greycourt to maybrook

David wrote:Ken--I heard that there were still tracks from Middletown to Unionville by the NJ-NY boarder. Is this true?---Would like to see the entrance of the Quarry where the tracks go in (Limecrest). When I was there three years ago, it looked like they had not been used for many years. Is this still true? Since you live in Sparta, I guess you know the area well!---ThanksYes, it's true. I also have some pictures of this area showing the tracks on the M&U and also saw the foundation for a water tower there.
David wrote: Also, there's a pretty good L&HR book by Jim Boyd and Tracy Antz that shows several nice shots of the L&HR on the Lime Crest property making deliveries so you may want to look into that. The book is just called the Lehigh and Hudson RiverDavid,
Is that the relatively new book that came out in 2002 and cost about $50? I think I have seen it on E-bay several times---
There is a good possibility that I will be investigating the line from Limecrest to Warwick NY this Xmas with Mike DiMunno. Perhaps you can give us a tour of Sparta Junction --Thanks
