Also, what kind of passenger schedule was operated? Was it mostly a rush hour operation?
from Brewster to New York in the AM rush and New York to Brewster in
the PM rush. Putnam Division trains originated and terminated at
Sedgwick Avenue Station in the Bronx and passengers for or fromGrand Central Terminal had to change at either High Bridge or University Heights
stations to or from Hudson Division trains.
I think at the end they were carrying around 300 passengers a day
between the two trains.
I rode the last train on the last day.
