I'll go check it out, and try to get some pictures, and scan them if I can.

BTW: Your info on the building of the overpass, and sinking the tracks into the cut is perfect.  :-)

Metro North WILL be going through with the "mid-harlem triple track", which will run the third track currently in existence at Fleetwood north and just north of Fleetwood implement a new set of switches (CP-115?), and then extend the third track up the existing right of way, joining it with the existing "middle" track at Crestwood.  MN was looking into extending the third track to the CP just south of Scarsdale, but it'l never happen north of Crestwood.  The EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) said no way to the third track north of Crestwood, because of wildlife and park land.

I'll go to Mt Kisco this Wed., and Pleasantville tonight.  I live seven minutes from Plea., and twelve minutes from MtK.
