The attached photo of the sign is our next big project.
We plan to build a replica of the crossing control tower that once stood guard over the Maybrook Line in Hopewell Junction.
We plan to put much-needed restrooms with flush toilets in the lower level.

This project is already underway with architects plans, land surveys and overall site planning.
We are working with the County and the Town to cover all the building requirements.
The site plan includes landscaping and picnic tables which are already under construction.

Of course all this will require funding. We will be asking for donations, grants and any other sources to raise the money.

Join us in turning the area into a Historical Park for the benefit of the Town, the County and everyone who enjoys the Rail Trail.

We will be asking for donation,and also sustaining funding such as monthly payments to pay the electric bill and insurance etc.
Maybe you could even remember us in your will or endowment.

In any case we have the volunteers ready to start work as soon as we can get all the plans in place and get enough funding.

Meanwhile our next work session and tours of the depot will be on Wednesday 7/24/2013

Come on down and join the fun. We will roll out the red carpet.

P. S. Don’t forget “Mr. Conductor” will be doing a railroad talk and slideshow in Millerton tomorrow (7/21/2013).
The show starts at 2:00 PM in the library annex on Century Blvd in Millerton. It is free and there will be refreshments.
