no its been long gone, google and bing pictures are usually several years old.
the location is in MNCR east yard,( now the wood tie storage facility) if it were still there , it would have been reported all over.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

Ex-Erie MU's, owned and used for storage by the electrical contractor who resides in the old Croton-North station building which is adjacent.

They are pretty dilapidated, and getting worse by the year.

Also known in the EL community as the 1930 General Electric MUs, Morris & Essex MUs or Edison cars, as Thomas Alva Edison was engineer on the first electric train from Hoboken to Montclair on 9/3/30.
