The Hudson Line (Metro North)
The Hudson Line of Metro Noord Railroad is an urban railway line that runs along the eastern bank of the Hudson River just off New York City. Metro-Nord traffic ends in Poughkeepsie, and Amtrak Empire Corridor services continue northbound to Albany and beyond. This route was first the Hudson River Railroad (and the Spuyten Duyvil and Port Morris Railroad just outside Spuyten Duyvil) and later part of the New York Central Railroad's Water Level Route.
Croton-Harmon subdivides the route into two different sections. The line to the southern side is supplied with electricity by a third railway line, which serves relatively closely situated stations on the suburbs. As a rule, public transport is provided by electrical vehicles, while private transport is provided by fast trainers. To the north of Croton-Harmon the line is not electrically powered and is usually double-track (with some three-track areas); the stations are also further apart.
Between Croton-Harmon and Poughkeepsie there are the most frequent direct train services that usually run expressway and jump over most of the valley stations. The Hudson line with Amtrak's Empire Corridor is divided on the northern side of Spuyten Duyvil until the end of the line. Hudson Line was constructed in 1851 by the Hudson Railroad as an expansion of the Troy and Greenbush Railroad between Troy and Albany in the city area.
Vanderbilt bought the Hudson River Railroad in 1864 and in 1869 fused it with other short-distance railways that Vanderbilt also had, among them the New Yorker and Harlem Railroad (Harlem Line). Both of these railways were called New York Central and Hudson River Railroad. In 1914 it was changed to New York Central Railroad.
For many years, the New York headquarters ran many inter-city and commute train services on this line. This was an important link between the Grand Central Terminal in New York and LaSalle Street Station in Chicago. Commuting along the line was provided to Albany Union Station, with 121 daily services in the NYC's top years.
By the end of the Second Woridewar, the number of privately owned railway traffic began to fall sharply with the beginning of the jet age and the building of the Interstate Highway System. New York headquarters began to lose cash on almost all commuting and inter-city lines. In 1968, they and their former competitor, the Pennsylvania Railroad, formed the Pennsylvania New York Central Transportation Company, which was later re-named the Penn Central Transportation Company.
However, the railways still lost cash. Pennsylvania Central tried several manoeuvres to postpone the collapse, which included the auction of the Grand Central Terminal's flight privileges; Pennsylvania Rails had done the same with its New York Penn Base. However, this was negated, which preserved the Grand Central. 1971 the National Railsroad passenger corporation took over the entire inter-city public transport in the USA.
From then on, Penn Central carried cargo and commuting along the Hudson line until it was converted to Conrail in 1976. Connecticut ran a commuting patrol to Albany until he quit duty in 1981 just outside Poughkeepsie (although Amtrak's Empire Services to Albany and beyond continued). 1983 the MTA Metro-North Railroad took over the entire Hudson Valley commuting operation.
A new facility was opened in 2009 on East 153rd Street in the Bronx near Yankee Stadium. There will be periodic facilities on the Hudson Line, plus dedicated facilities from the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines for New York Yankees plays. In spite of its name, the Hudson Line will not cross the Hudson until it is 11 mile (.18 km) and six stations from Grand Central.
Along the riverbank the view is almost steady, so you can see much of the way to Poughkeepsie. The Hudson line (right, not electrified) flows into the Hudson line just off Spuyten Duyvil. The Hudson Line leaves the route common with the Harlem and New Haven Lines after Street 125 and across the Harlem Rivers, past the first Yankees - East 153rd Street, which provides entry to the lower Bronx and Yankee Stadium.
Afterwards, the Highbridge stop, which is only accessible to employees, follows the Major Deegan Expressway to the north. From a technical point of view in Manhattan, although on the continent, Marble Hill provides a shuttle to the IRT Broadway - Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway at Marble Hill - 225th St. Stop.
There is a brief turn to Spuyten Duyvil and the staircase to the road. Right behind the train stop, the route returns to the Hudson River Railroad, which is common with Amtrak, and after another stop in Riverdale, it is outside New York. Palisades are on the other side of the riverbank, while the train runs through the town of Yonkers and its four mostly suburban-stations.
Some fast passenger services stop at the recently refurbished Yonkers Railway Terminal, the first for transfers to Amtrak. Smaller, suburbs stations are crossed as the Tappan Zee Bridge seems to appear in the northern part and the stream broaden. However, after crossing the Single Sin Singapore Jail, the railway arrives in Ossining, where a boat takes passengers across the broad canal.
Electrical locomotives complete their journey one stop further, at Croton-Harmon, a joint of Amtrak just to the south of Harmon Yard and just west of Croton Point. Rails run up-country, followed by US 9, to the next and newest stop, Cortlandt, the only non-New York City train stop on the route where the Hudson River is not visible.
Hudson Riviera resurfaces at Peekskill, the last stop in the Shire, where the Bear Mountain Bridge can be seen to the North. When the Hudson Highlands begin, the stream narrowed off just off Peekskill. The Dunderberg and Bear Hills can be seen on the other side of the canal. It travels through two brief tunnel, one under the Bear Mountain Bridge counter-bear.
The first stop of Putnam Country, Manitou, is serving a small town. There is another passage just off Garrison and then a glimpse of the West Point stonebuildings; the next stop is Cold Spring on the riverbank, the last one in the shire. Dutchess Counties line is traversed in two 257m long Tunneln under the Breakneck Ridge at the Breakneck Point; one sees the current King Mountain over the river. t...
Breakneck Ridge Flaggenstopp marked the end of the Highlands, as the Newburgh Bay extends again. In Beacon there is a boat connection to Newburgh, whose skin is seen across the stream, and just after getting off the bus under the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge. Directly upstream is New Hamburg, a small village in the town of Poughkeepsie and a railway terminus that was shut down during the NYCRR meetings but finally re-opened.
Poughkeepsie's last 8.5 mile to the recently refurbished terminus, which includes the huge stone pit at tilcon, is the longest stretch between two stations on a metro northern-mainline. The electrical services to and from Croton-Harmon use the regular railcars named as M3 and M7A, which can also be seen on the Metro-North Harlem Line and the Long Island Rail Road as M3 and S7.
Genesis P32AC-DMs are leading the way in this area. It would be laborious and time-consuming to turn the engines at both ends of the line, so that the traction units generally use push-pull mode with the engine at the northern end of the rail. As a rule, they pull/pull six or seven Shoreliner carriages with a cabin carriage at the southern end of the carriage.
Genesis engines are mostly in the silver-blue colours of the Metro North, but sometimes you can see the red/black/white schema adopted from the New York, New Havener and Hartford Railroad, as the train is bundled with ConnDOT, whose carts with stripes of lightning are also widely used on the Hudson line.
The MTA, as part of the Penn Station Accessibility Program, has suggested sending some Hudson Line locomotives to Penn Station on the west side of Manhattan. The Hudson Line train would reach Penn Station via Empire Connections, an Amtrak siding. Used by Amtrak's Empire Corridor train for Penn Station, this sector differs from the Hudson line between Riverdale and Spuyten Duyvil.
Two new Hudson Line stations will be built along the Empire Link in Manhattan, one near Manhattanville's Street 125 degrees and the other near Upper West Side's Street 62 degrees. 5 ] The scheme would allow Hudson Line drivers to drive directly to West side targets.
The Hudson Line is located on the northerly boundary of 42nd St. (i.e. 200-300 ft due to the southern ends of the tracks). Marble Hill Cutoff cut the line by 0.73 miles around 1906, so that Yonkers train terminal (for example) is at milestone 15. NYC Hudson Division until 1981.
