Abandoned Rails of

Maybrook, New York

Maybrook, NY, once hosted one of the largest yard complexes east of the Mississippi. The yard was operated by the Central New England Railroad, a subsidiary of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad. These pictures were taken circa 1975. (1975, submitted by John Fasulo)
An engine house is seen on the right, with a long out-of-use coal tower on the left. In the background between them is the roundhouse. (1975, submitted by John Fasulo)
The 95-foot turntable stands idle. Today, the entire area is now a trucking operation. (1975, submitted by John Fasulo)

All evidence of Maybrook yard is now gone but for a single track coming from Campbell Hall.

Once the Poughkeepsie Bridge over the Hudson burned, it was over for the Maybrook. Now a FedEx facility.

One silver lining - the Poughkeepsie Bridge that burned is now a pedestrian bridge "Walkway Over the Hudson" https://walkway.org/
