I notice on the 1958 timetable posted previously on this thread that Kitchawan (between Millwood and Croton Lake) is no longer a stop.

You know, the stations on the Put took a long time to vanish after cessation of service, but today I believe only the following are left: Yorktown, Elmsford, Lake Mahopac, Briarcliff. Briarcliff is getting a whole lot less recognizable since the addition was built, but we can be grateful it's in good shape and likely to remain so.

Tilly Foster station also survives, on private property, moved inside perimeter of a junk yard off Old Mine Road, if I remember correctly.

The freight houses at Lake Mahopac and Baldwin Place survive as well.

Interesting. I didn't know about Tilly Foster. I do know those freight houses are there --- I just decided not to count them
