The following were taken by me while riding around NY-NJ via bicycle at age 15:

West Haverstraw, NY station area, looking north, seen from overpass, April 29, 1970
Boxcars are a Reading and a Penn-Central. Station at left was green, and seemed
to be serving as a freight office.

Another view of the West Haverstraw station on the same time & date.

Looking southbound further south in Haverstraw (4/29/70),
reconditioned station owned by local business renamed "Railroad Square".

Orangeburg, NY station on the West Shore (4/29/70), serving as a library at the time.

Abandoned West Norwoood station along the West Shore line

serving as a police station at the time.

These are scans of a West Shore Timetable dated April 27, 1947.
Scroll to the right (if need be) to see the entire image. Due to size,
I've divided it into 4 parts, the first 2 are the outer parts, and the
last 2 comprise the inner full-length section.
Note O&W trains listed: 101, 103, 105, 102, 104,
and in the Sunday section: 137, 103, 108, 136, 112.
