Second, a view of the Jones (formerly L&HR) yard at Warwick as it appears today.

Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

Third, and last, I've combined my photo with one posted by "Rev" earlier on this thread.  I hope you don't mind, Rev.  Email me with your name and I'll re-credit the before-n-after view appropriately.
 
But I think this gives a nice view of what does (and what does not) remain of the original LHR structures.
 
Enjoy.

Charlie,
 
Grest shots. Did security come after you? When I was there they did but I got away

Hey Ken -
Nope...no hassles.  I wandered around with my camera for a bit.  There was a guy working on his car and listeining to his radio, and in the far distance two riding mowers worked on the grounds.  The place was so clean and sleepy, it felt more like a miniature-golf course than what had been a busy yard and shops complex filled with the rumble and smoke of Alcos.

Yes, I can see by the pictures.  I'm glad you were able to get some nice shots.

Charlie-
 
The former L&HR office building is privately owned (not by Jones Chemical)- hence no security for that one. (And the guy working on the car is a friend; heck- I know the people in all three houses.)
 
The Jones plant operation is in the former shop building and the former storehouse. NS owns the main and the run-around track, and Jones owns the land where the former yard tracks were. Jones had the 8 yard tracks lifted and the rails sold for scrap a few years ago.
 
Here's a shot of the south side of the office building, from the shop lead, on the last day (March 31, 1976). Fittingly, a grungy weather day...

Another one from the last day, taken from alongside the office building. 21 and 29 back down to the sand tower and fuel rack while drilling the yard in the afternoon. The red 'thing' under the tarp to the right is 4 wheel caboose 81, ready for its move to its new home four blocks away.

Another one, same day. The tank car has just been 'kicked' by the yard drill, heading for Jones Chemicals. The brakeman rode the car to control the speed and stop the car. At the far right, the steel arch is part of the turntable- also scrapped a few years back.

Hi Marty -
I was hoping you'd see the newest additions to the thread.  Thanks for the pix, and for the detalis on the yard.  I figured the old TT was gone, but could make out the storehouse to the left of the shops (working from Jim Boyd's diagram here).  
 
A guy I met at the deli said he worked at what had been the yard office (you probably know him too ).  Cool building...unfortunately the trackside staircase view is overgrown.
 
    ...the sands of time.

Just for grins and giggles.  Is there any photos available of the Bridge that killed the railroad?  It would be a fitting ending to the photo tour of where the route had been headed to.
Plus there hadnt been much going on in either this forum or the one in Railroad. Net so I thought I,d throw something out.

If you talking about the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge go here:

They have a bunch of stuff with pics, including building the bridge & the fire that brought its demise .

The bridge above the L&HR/NYS&W in Franklin is going to be replaced soon. I have no date as to when this is going to happen so I took the camera and took some pictures for the record.
 
We are where the station for the DL&W and NYS&W once stood looking towards the Sterling Mine Museum or NJ Zinc.
