Suffern, New York
By Pierce Haviland

There is a lot of action in Suffern, New York. New Jersey Transit runs locals to Hoboken during the day, with more frequent service during peak hours. The division post with Metro-North is located just north of the yard which is shared with Norfolk Southern. On this day in March of 2006, I captured a new Alstom PL-42 AC arriving from Hoboken and a new Metro-North cab car.

All the photos below were taken with a telephoto lens while I was clear of railroad property.
You should never trespass on railroad property. It is dangerous and illegal!
