A bit further up the Hudson Line in Chelsea, there is a grade crossing, but I think it's only for those who are using the yacht. A few miles south of Poughkeepsie, there is another grade crossing.



Yeah it's been a while since I've been up there. I know there used to be. Thanks for the info.
I think it may be possible that NJ Transit might not be the perfect, infallible organization that most people assume it is.

How many does Wassaic to Southeast have
I believe the New Haven line is the only main line without crossings

Ellen Avenue (just above the Brewster station) is what you're thinking of there.

Someone just listed ALL the Harlem line ones. Use your powers of deduction and figure it out.

Nope, I'm thinking of Brewster Hwy as it's listed in the timetable even though Ellen Ave my be the actual street name.

How many private Metro-North only grade crossings are on the Harlem Line?

I know of one in Thornwood at Commerce Street and Lafayette Street that is used to access power substation B-29 at about milepost 29.5.

There's a MN power substation at the crossing,was a fishing access point to the New Croton Res(off I-684).
