Poughkeepsie Bridge After The Fire

Poughkeepsie Bridge after Fire

The “Maybrook Line” was important to New England before the advent of Penn Central and before the Poughkeepsie Bridge burned. This piece of the railroad carried freight from Maybrook Yard, across the Poughkeepsie Bridge to Hopewell Junction where it joined a line from Beacon. The railroad then went to Brewster, then Danbury, and finally to Cedar Hill Yard in New Haven.

See the effects of this fire on Eastern Railroading.

2009 and the Poughkeepsie Bridge Walkway is Open. The fellow in yellow jacket carrying a banjo is Pete Seeger.
