1887 Erie Suffern, NY station

Postby walterconklin » Mon Jun 23, 2014 7:19 am

Hello,

Can someone please tell me which side of the tracks was the 1887 Erie train station formally located in Suffern, NY? Comparing two postcard images of the station taken from different vantages suggests to me that the station is on different sides of the tracks in each of the images. I know that the station was located near the site of the present day New York Thruway overpass according to Wikipedia. Does the Suffern Railroad Museum occupy the former Wells Fargo Express Mail depot built in 1903? There appears to be a freight depot shown in the second attached image.

Thank you in advance of your help.

Sincerely,
Walter Conklin
