A portion of the area immediately surrounding the new Shipyard Brewery scene, circa the autumn of 1941, just completed this week as a part of my layout's work-in-progress extension called the Beacon Branch of the HHRR.

I don't get around to this forum all that much anymore, but here's a shot I've been meaning to add for a while, entitled "Approching the Grade Crossing in Putney."

Any visit to the Mid-Hudson Region of New York State today will surely include a walk across The Walkway Over The Hudson, at 6,768 feet it is the world's longest pedestrian bridge, linking the river's east and west shores high above the mighty Hudson. But this wasn't always so.

For nearly a century before, the Poughkeepsie RR Bridge had been famous as the NYNH&H's crucial rail link for moving vast quantities of mid-western raw materials eastward and carrying New England's countless manufactured goods to markets in the west. It soared more than 200 feet above the surface of the Hudson River and far above the NYC's equally famous trackage of The Water Level Route on the river's eastern bank below. There one could daily witnessed the thundering passage of many of the most famous named trains in railroading history.

Back in the closing days of railroading's Golden Age of diesel passenger service the site where the two railroad lines crossed was a Mecca for rail photographers. Images such as that modeled below appeared in countless railfanning magazines and other publications of the day. This diorama photo of early 1950's railfan-photographers was taken from the actual location right next to the NYC's real tracks using a special lens.
