Norm - I, too lived there and often watched the yards. I grew up in
Parkchester. Just yesterday I purchased one of Bob's Photos new books at
Timonium specifically because it had pictures of the Van Nest shops! The
title is The New Haven Railroad's Electrified Zone, Robert A. Liljestrand,
37 pring St., Ansonia, CT06401. Cost is $15.00, shipping cost unknown. -

This is (or was) in the Bronx, along Tremont Avenue.

Norm,

I believe Van Nest is what the New Haven called its Electric Power Shop.
Are you referring to the Harlem River or Oak Point Yards?

Some views of the Van Nest Shops are in Stauffer/Swanberg's NEW HAVEN
POWER in the electric section.
