What little remains....a train station in the woods.


I noticed this support post while driving down a parkway in New York. While many might not notice this or give it a second thought, I was immediately intrigued. I soon discovered this was the remains of a train station. I knew I needed to see it up close.


I ended up at an event nearby, and knew I couldn't head home without a quick stop to see this place. I never explore alone (because I'm a big chicken), but I had to at least see it. I parked, pulled on boots, and ran, camera in hand, down the path to find this train station. 

The platform.

Not much remains, but it was still a really cool find. I wanted to explore more, but I didn't want to wander too far into the woods alone. I will be heading back to explore more and take more pictures.



I will definitely be heading back to explore more and find out more about the history of this forgotten place.

  1. Very cool! Reminds me of the time I investigated the remains of a small Town-run ski hill in my area.
