The attached present-day Google Earth image of Chester NY (the one near
Middletown, not the one in the Adirondacks (who knew??)) shows the station
and a series of buildings at about a 45d angle to the where the tracks used
to be. Without a map to verify this, I >>think<< that the spur which has
been documented in photographs went alongside the NW side of the building
just to the lower-right of the word "Chester" in this image, through the
very dark shadow, and continued (I think) along the back of the buildings
along the street to the left. This location's just west of Greycourt.
