Well, hardly awesome, esp. these two! Everybody has their
Golden Age of Trainwatching or whatever. It is usually when
you are younger and have FREE TIME. No dough naturally, but
you do without to pay for the film and gas. You do a lot
of loitering waiting for something to roll by. You try to hunt
out good views, good sites. You hang out until something
DOES roll by.  You try to catch the action. Essentially, 80%
of the pix is the old saw "be there at f/8"! Early in the morn
or late in the day is when the light is worth looking at.  
Midday stuff usually is a bore unless you work the locale
good and proper.  
Another thing that really helps is to wait 20 years or so before
you show anybody anything. As O Winston Link said "it has to
age".
Yes, I burned off a LOT of youthful capital waiting to take the
few good pix I have. If I had the time again, I'd still have
done pretty much what I did except I would have;
1. got a medium format camera
2. been a lot more focused on telling a story
3. avoided the pitfalls of wedge shots, roster shots and  
put a bunch more PEOPLE in my pix!
 
Hell, at least I had a good time!

Rev,
 
Great shots. Thanks for contributing to the L&HR Forum.
 
If you approve, I would like to edit one of your pictures and paste in into one of the abandoned ROWs to show people, like myself, what it must have looked like to see the L&HR in different areas.

Great. I have a few places that I think your past shots might look good in some of my present pictures.

Rev
Our daughter recently purchased an older home just South of Warwick along side the L&H at the "Covered Bridge" road crossing. They are wondering if this was a station stop(they are still in NY here), as rumour has it that their house at one time long ago was a "tea house", better yet a pub, that served weary travelers coming off or on the L&H. I did not see any such stop on the map. Also could you identify the crossing in your second shot.
Thanks a lot

Hey, Im pretty hazy or at least as hazy as it was the day I snapped the pix.
My guess would be north of Warwick somewhere near the airport. Surely
Marty or another local will be able to nail it straight off.
Come to think of it, I don't recall even taking the pix!

This was taken the day of the burning of the Poughkeepsie bridge.  I went to the office and asked permission to go on the property, and was told "Sure, be careful"
 
Too bad the photos I took that day came out so poorly.  Here is the best one, #26 in the shops.

Cheese, it's #24.  It showed up better on the scanned version than the photo I scanned it from.

Looks like no one's visited Warwick in a while.  It was a crazy weekend at the end of March 1976 for me and 3 friends.
I had to take a photo of the brass plate on the office building:

in the early 1950's I had an uncle who worked for L&HR and lived in Warwick, 33 Welling Avenue.  His name was Mark Nicholas, and he probably worked in the building shown in this forum.  I visited him every summer and I believe he once took me to see the office (too long ago to remember).  If anyone on this forum lives in Warwick, would love to know if you knew or heard of Mark (long since gone).  thx.

If your uncle had an office job, then yes, this would have been where he worked- it was the L&HR's headquarters building and general offices.
 
His name is familiar, but I can't put a specific finger on it. And, are you sure the address is right? I grew up on the corner of Orchard St and Welling Ave (we moved there in 1954, when I was seven). The numbers on Welling only go as high as 32- maybe a different number, or possibly Wheeler Avenue? There were several L&HR men in my neighborhood- from track laborer to diesel shop mechanic to a couple of engineers, a retired passenger conductor, to the road's then General Freight Agent...

thx for replying.  Iknow it was Welling Avenue, but I'm probably wrong about the address.  It was a big old Victorian with a large front porch and he had a big vegetable garden in his back yard, raised all his own vegetables.  He had three children, two boys and a girl, the girl had polio and wore braces.  This summer I may get a chance to drive up there and revisit old times.  thx again.

You just described about half the houses on Welling Avenue- at least in the fifties  
 
Pretty sure I remember the daughter- seem to remember she was a couple of years older than me.
