    Default New York Westchester & Boston

    So about a month ago, I started work on the old Westchester which has proven a little difficult while chasing down old info and pics from google. With the info I have I'm modeling between 1931 to 37 when service ends. Here's a video of what I have So far from Harlem Terminal to Dyre Ave. Thanks.

    Hi Cory,

    I'm glad that someone is finally creating this route. I've been asking around for a long time for someone to do it. In the late 60's early and early 70's I took that line daily from Baychester Ave. south into Manhattan. Also I followed quite a bit of the right of way. Most of the old right of way was not only abandon, but sold and built over.

    About 6 minutes into the video you have a great reproduction of the E180th st station. I curious if you are going make those pressed metal cars with their distinctive arched windows or you just sticking to the route. I think the only rolling stock available is their MOW engine 701.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you sir and I do hope to model these cars along with some early New Haven equipment. I do have an EP-1 in the works.
