- Jan 31, 2002Conrail re-numbered all of the mileposts on the Selkirk Branch (former West
Shore) in 1984. Not sure exactly where...Hoboken?? Now, the mileposts
begin in Stuyvesant and end in Hoffmans (MP 42). Maybe by any stroke of
luck, one is still lying in the weeds somewhere.
I know this is going off topic quite a bit, but a friend of mine has a
picture of an E8 on the point of an Amtrak train going through South
Schenectady yard. The milepost in the shot is 152 (currently its MP 32).
Interesting picture because Amtrak stopped running up the branch in 1978!
Here's a somewhat current Fonda shot that has a little FJ&G charm. It's
Amtrak 48 running right on time.

I would like to get a couple of the old NYC mileposts. They are concrete,
large and most all have been supplanted by the reflectorized ones. These
are not museum material.
