Where was this trestle on the SNY?

Seems like the northern end of the Southern NY Railway. Any idea?

Have you got a map location? Lots of creek and valley crosses in there.

I can't seem to find any relevant mapping. The trestle is documented in Nestle's book on the SNY and predecessors.

I suspect it crossed Fulmer Creek.

I believe the location is at/near N42.966870, W74.950122. The trestle seems well represented on the 1945, 1954 & 1970 topo maps shown at http://www.HistoricAerials.com even though the rails were long gone by then.

I had asked Paul a few years ago and he didn't know the exact location. Everyone always answered South of Mohawk.
