Re: NYC list (was Re: PC: Albany's Union Station)

The National NYC Museum has a webpage and it's link (along with a link to
Jerry's   PC page) can be found at http://nyc.railfan.net/

The Museum is in the process of moving their fairly extensive page over to
railfan.net as well.  So the NYC fans dont feel left out I for one am a fan
of the "Water Level Route"
