Re: Poughkeepsie TOD

There was serious talk of extending service to Hudson several years ago. The talk went to the level of printing up prototype duplexes with the zone brekdowns for the service. I have some somewhere & if I can dig them up I'll scan them & post them for all the world to see. May be worth something someday.

What keeps getting the Idea shot down is the availability of train storage in Hudson. Also NIMBY complaints of idiling engines with all that noise & fumes. Fueling cycles, crew & maintenance facilities, prohibitive cost of deadheading equiptment & crews back & forth to Harmon or Poughkeepsie all factor in keeping the idea shelved.
