Mid 1990s(?) The Graham Line only began passenger service in 1983,
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

I think it was rebuilt about 10 years ago? I moved to the region in the 1996, and it wasn't until a few years after that the new station went in. I believe it was more than five years ago though.

Yes, when the service moved to the Graham Line. I thought the original post was asking when that station was rebuilt to its current form and renamed "Middletown - Town of Walkill"

What station served the Middletown area between the shift to the Graham Line and the opening of the current station?
"The Erie only sells 1 way tickets on the NJ&NY because it only has a 99 year lease on the line."

Same location, smaller station.

I remember seeing on a video that the station canopy used to be red, but when it was rebuilt it was changed to green.
