Thanks for sharing this. All I discovered about the D&HT was published in "Forgotten Railroads Through Westchester County." All I know is that the track ended in someone's backyard in North Salem, N.Y., and that's as far as they got to reaching Golden's Bridge and a connection with the NYC Harlem Division. I look forward to reading through your research!

Thank you Otto.
I enjoy exploring in the woods AND making maps so the opportunity to discover, document and share this stuff is always a pleasure. There’s a lot of info available about "what it once was” -- I like to fill in the blanks as to “how it is now” (so to speak)...
