I know I've asked before on this one and I can't find the post.

This slide was unlabeled. Any idea where it was taken? Thanks.

I'd say there's a very high probability that it's on the hilly part of the Maybrook Line between Brewster and Pougkeepsie, probably an eastbound train, but I can't pick out a specific spot. The tall smokestack in the upper right background may be a good location clue for someone. The PC diesels combined with the U25B still in NH paint pin the date as 1969 or 1970.

I think I can see a river and other buildings near the smokestack. Might it be the Hudson River State Hospital, which took coal deliveries by rail?

You may have to scroll down to see the photo. Or use Control +F to find the word "hospital."
