Just up the road on RT94 towards Warwick, here you will find the old McAfee Station now being used as a home.

I know this belongs on the EL forum, but I use to illustrate a question.
Looking at my Mueller's Orange Co atlas I see there was a turntable
somewhere to the left of the Erie main and to the right of the L&HR
spur. It seems that it was a Leigh table. Now I realize that the
county atlases are often less than accurate but I wonder if
anybody has further info.  
I would scan it in for you but I dont have a digi cam. Ill try to
find somebody who can help me on that.
 
Looking forward to your replies....

 
Rev,
 
You are correct wrt the turntable.  I used to live right across the street from the turntable that you suspected was there.
 
My maternal grandfather, Bob Hann, was an engineer on the L&H for some 40 years.  His dad, Albert, was road foreman.  My dad worked there for a time as did a couple of my uncles.
 
The turntable was full of debris and had trees growing out of it.  It is in that photo, you just can't make it out.

Great Additions!  
 
Where was that pic of the turntable location taken?  
 
Jim...  

 
It was taken from the bridge that carries the L&H main over the Erie tracks.  The commuter train is now on the fill between Greycourt and Chester.  One would assume the train's next stop is the station in down town Chester.

Well, decided to take a trip and follow the L&HR from Warwick up to Sugar Loaf to see the caboose I had heard about. Here's what I found.

While I'm patriotic and all, I don't believe to cover the entire side of the Caboose, IMHO    The place and caboose is also for sale. Any takers
 
I was thinking the forum all get in on the action and call it the L&R Railfan Station  
 
We can serve burgers called the Fan/The Caboose/The Club car for club sandwiches. Okay, help me out here

Looking towards Warwick.
 
Okay! Any takers on the station? I know we need a place of our own were we can site right next to the tracks without being hassled with a brew and burger. Hmm, how about that for a name Nah, let's stick to RR related.
 
On another note, the Maybrook train museum will be opening next month. Any takers? Perhaps we can get to there and the Poughkeepsie bridge.

Great pix, Ken...and boy that place is tempting.  Especially when ya throw in the caboose.  And I guess that location 'd give us a front row seat for the Suzie-Q.

Another shot of the building with the RR tracks to the right.
 
From behind me is Jones Chemical Yard. I was being looked at very closely by the Security Guard and could not take any pictures facing in that direction. I will be going there again and asking for permission to view the area.  

 
 
Ken, I may have a surprise pic for ya.

First a view of the former L&HR yard office at Warwick NY.  Apparently security was at lunch.
