Re: Dyre Avenue IRT anniversary

Once you get north of Kingsbridge Road, the ROW has been utterly obliterated. What makes the NYW&B abandonment different from most others was that it was actively and deliberately destroyed (to avoid having a hefty potential 1946 bond payment). Other railroads are simply left to rot, this one was systematically destroyed.

Again, one of the sadder RR stories out there.
