Otto, do you (or anyone) know if the WN purchased the Housatonic right of way (ROW) in Greenwich? What appears to be ROW of the Housatonic goes through the Tamarack Country Club. The Tamarack purchased that property (the Griffen Farm) in 1928. Had the NYW&B given up on the northern extension by 1928? Also, I have to believe that the Housatonic right of way just west of the NY/CT state line would now (and in the 1920s) be under the greatly expanded Rye Lake, so at least there, the WN would have to have had a different ROW than the Housatonic.

I looked on the topo map and aerial photos (DOQ), and sure enough, there's a very clear railbed going that way. But I'm unable to find any information about a railroad between Savona and Wayne. Here's the route that I can see on the aerial photos and topo maps:

Alas, I don't have any web interface which will display that map against a DOQ.
Does anybody know anything more about this railroad?
