Here is a view of the turntable, overgrown but intact, along with water
tower and coal dock.
Wish I took more pix, that is for sure!

It seems kind of hard to know how the pix will look on the site. At home
they look a lot better than they appear here. I know they are rather  
small, but they are all either too dark or too light.

Rev,
 
I can always try and brush them up with Photoshop for you. If there are any that you would like me to work on, just say the word and I will see what I can do.

Well I think may be a matter of what monitor one is viewing too. I notice
they look different at work and home .
 
I suppose PCs havent yet been designed to display exactly the same
thing.

There's going to be an article in Trains Magazine about Maybrook if anyone is interested:
 
Railroad print: Maybrook, N.Y.
One yard, six railroads, cars by the thousands: the Northeastís melting pot.

How many roads converged on Maybrook/Campbell Hill and what were they? I know Erie, L&NE and L&HR. What are the others?
 
Thanks!

Jim,
   
I think they were:  New Haven, NYO&W. & The NYC branch from Kingston.
 
Better double check me on that, though.

At Maybrook you had the -
 
NYNH&H (yard owner)
 
Erie (technically entering via trackage rights on the CNE)
 
NYC (not entering Maybrook proper, but with the NH at Campbell Hall via trackage rights via the Erie Montgomery branch)
 
L&HR (directly)
 
NYO&W (again via CNE trackage rights)
 
L&NE (a tennant of the Erie, for all intents and purposes)
 
A very exciting place at one time, to be sure!
