Railfanning in Oragne County - A few questions

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

After COVID-19 is over, I am probably going to take a trip to Orange County to railfan. As I have never railfanned here before, I was just wondering if any of you could answer a few of my questions?

  1. Is there a reliable/frequent bus from the Harriman Train Station to Chester, NY?
  2. Is there any mode of public transport to get to/from either Chester, NY or Salisbury Mills, NY to Iona Island
  3. How often do NS trains run on that industrial track along the OCHRT (Orange County Heritage Rail Trail)
  4. How often do CSX River Line trains run?

@XcelsiorBoii4888 @WillF40PH @Mnrr6131 @engineerboy6561 @Via Garibaldi 8 @BM5 via Woodhaven do any of you know answers to any of these questions?

There is a bus from Harriman to Chester; it runs five trips a day each way on weekdays and two on weekends (I have no idea how reliable it is or if it's timed to meet the trains), and Iona Island is closed to the public as a nature reserve.
