Wow, I thought I gave that one away! I guess nobody like the poor little New Haven........
 
Tell you what, and just so I can tell if ANYBODY is looking, here's a BIG clue......
 
This town is located right by a city where they used to make guns of the 1911 variety.......NOW you can "suit up" and GTL!

Hartford is the city near by, but that is all I've got.

Hmm, you are close, but wrong large city!  
 
Think of a city not too far away, about the same size, also on the same river.
 
The subject station location sits along the route between these two cities.
 
Don't worry, there's no border patrol to worry about here!

Farther north then -somewhere near Springfield Mass.
 
There are no tracks at the station, so I assume it is on an abandoned line.

Yes, you are VERY close now.........I think with one more clue, you can get this......Good old George and his buddy Knox built a special building here to keep stuff safe......And said place leant its name to the branch this station sat on, and part of this branch still remains in place today, just shy of where this picture was taken!

Wow, major head scratcher for me. I was looking at branches in Connecticut because I am somewhat familiar with those. I forgot about the NH branch that ran sort of parallel to the main between Springfield and Hartford.  
 
This is the East Longmeadow Mass station. Glad to see it has been preserved. I am not sure what the branch was called.

There ya go my friend! I knew you'd get it......Yes, this was on the NH's Armory Branch, partly operated today (strangely enough) by the Central New England RR. Here's a good thread on that "other" forum about the branch in question .....http://www.railroad.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=126&t=54972, and here's a link to the abandoned part that is now the Redstone Trail......http://www.traillink.com/trail/redstone-rail-trail.aspx
