It's been a long time since I've been to New Milford (like back when Lenny used to cut my hair at the barbershop across from the station, and going to the station for super cool Christmas train displays long), but if memory serves me right, I believe there is a siding there, but whether it's active/connected ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
As far as how things were handled pre-Wassaic, I have no idea. I was only 9 when the extension opened, and didn't start riding the trains until a few years afterwards. Another question for our experienced resident railroaders. I want to say that trains were stored in Dover based on some pictures I've seen on Emily's Harlem Line site, but I'm not totally confident on that. Didn't some trains run up to Tenmile River prior to the Wassaic extension? I could see them deadheading back to Dover for storage, but deadhead trains from Dover back to Brewster seems like a long haul.
Before I drag this too far off topic, in a perfect world where the HRRC plays nice, has there been any interest from the folks in Kent in Danbury service? I'm sure most are perfectly content driving over the hill to Wingdale/Dover/Wassaic, but wasn't there some big hooplah when that McGinnis P32 pulled into town however long ago?

"That sapling that once grew just south of Wassaic may be long gone, and the Harlem Line’s appearance may have changed over the years, but for decades to come, I can count on it continuing to provide me with funny recollections"
