Welcome to my New York Harbor Railroad web site. I will be documenting my design and construction of the layout here on this site. The location I have selected for my layout is on the West Side of Manhattan during 1947. The railroads included in my design are: The New York Central (30th Street Yard), Erie Railroad (28th Street Yard), The New York Terminal Stores Building, the Lehigh Valley Railroad (27th Street) and the New York Central's High Line. The Erie and the Lehigh Valley railroad where served by car float operations. The New York Central besides car floats was also served by the main line to 60th street yard and northward towards the Bronx.
