I’ve looked at a few historical photographs of Poughkeepsie and haven’t been able to locate were this coal and water facility was located. It would seem that the Poughkeepsie Bridge was behind the cameraman. Judging by the topography (whole photo is not shown); it appears that this station was north of the bridge. The facility had coal burning engines for coal conveyance and possibly for water pumping. I assume this unique facility lasted till the final days of steam??
