Just to update some points...there are still several sections of rail that can be found, Elmsford for one, quite a few in Yonkers. Last I looked there were tell tales still up by Gray Oaks. Coal is still easy to find as is the occasional spike or tie plate along the whole line.
On a sad note, for those who were not aware, Joe Schiavone passed away recently. Thanks to Joe for doing his share to keep The Put's history alive for future generations.
