Re: [FJGRailroad] Re: Amsterdam Enginehouse? FOUND IT
- Paul,Boy, that picture looks familiar! I never even though to look at those arial shots after I found the engine house on the map!Aaron,Unfortunately, most of the maps I have cut off at the city limit on the east end so there may have been some facilities farther to the east that don't show up. And the Google satellite maps don't go back quite far enough.... Quist Lumber shows up just east of the city line on a 1942 map, between the NYCRR and the "Abandoned Trolley Right-of-Way", and there is a siding running into their property between the lumber sheds that comes off the west end of the yard. The area between their property and the river is identified as NYCRR and "Full of Tracks". The yard itself isn't on my maps.JerryJerryJerry

The building shows up in the lower center of the photo, and appears to
have had a vent on the center of the roof. The 26 foot length would
only be long enough to hold a tender, but plenty big enough to hold a
Neat find though!
Cushing Crushed Stone's little green and white thing... was that a Mack
by any chance?
