Central New England Railway (CNE) Bus Tour 2016

This is a heads up for those planning to join us for the 2016 segment of the annual bus tour along various portions of the former Central New England Railway. Our trip will take place on Sunday April 3 starting at Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie. There is a parking lot on Water street just across from the Metro North parking garage. within sight of the Hudson River and the Walkway Bridge. The buses cost less on Sunday and traffic is less at least in the morning. It seems like the weather is better the first weeks of April than March and that is another factor. Please notify your friends so that everyone who wants to go has a chance. The price will be $55 per person again. This years trip will include the former railroad bridge ( now a Walkway) in Poughkeepsie, The line from Highland to Maybrook and Campbell Hall. After lunch one of the stops will be the restored Hopewell Junction Depot and Museum. and the newly built replica of the New Haven Switch Tower ss 196. Then return to Poughkeepsie. As usual lunch will be provided. We have planned this trip to reach as many of the remaining historical spots as our intrepid scouts could locate. In many cases we have had to rely on photographs, new and old, to fill in parts of the puzzle. We hope that you will gain a better understanding of the part that the railroads played in the history and development of New York. As usual, everybody will get a copy of the 2016 CNE Tour guide book. We have a lot of ground to cover so we will have coffee and buses will roll at 9:00. Try to get there by 8:30 or earlier. The cost of this year's tour will be $55.00 per person and payment should be made out to: Joseph Mato CNE 2016 Joe Mato 62 Wood RD CNE 2016 Redding, CT 06896 (home): 203 938-9992 e-mail: joemato@sbcglobal.net Be sure to include your E-Mail address so we can contact you if we need to.

Abstract: The collection consists of tour guidebooks compiled by Bernard L.

We toured the R&C RR from Rhinecliff to Pine Plains. After lunch we followed the R&C RR and the P&E RR back to Poughkeepsie. We had perfect weather for the trip.

ec-bp.com The Forum for Supply Chain Integration


ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.
Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.

The Central New England Railway Yard at Maybrook, New York

We have a really new and really cool feature about the Central New England Railway / New Haven Railroad. It is a Journal of the Maybrook Yard. All kinds of previously unpublished and fascinating things!

The Maybrook Line across Dutchess County The "Maybrook Line" was important to New England before the advent of Penn Central and before the Poughkeepsie Bridge burned. This piece of the railroad carried freight from Maybrook Yard, across the Poughkeepsie Bridge to Hopewell Junction where it joined a line from Beacon. The railroad then went to Brewster, then Danbury, and finally to Cedar Hill Yard in New Haven.
