Looking for Putnam Division track diagrams

Postby DV Tower » Sat Jul 22, 2017 9:41 pm

Hello All, this is my first post, I'm very interested in the Putnam Division since I grew up across the street from Stella D'Oro's plant in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx and watched RS-3's operating on the Put and at FH yard. I was wondering if anyone might have a trackplan going from Sedgwick Avenue to Eastview and / or of FH yard around 1958. I'm trying to build an N-scale layout of this line going from DV to BN and up the Put. Thanks Ben

Ben, you'll want to pick up a copy of "Forgotten Railroads Through Westchester County," which includes a detailed track map of the Nepperhan Branch, as well as other details of freight operation on the Put.

In terms of getting "trackplans" for the entire route from Sedgwick Ave. to East View, why don't you tell us how big your layout is and what locations you are interested in?
