D&H Stations & Buildings
Unless otherwise noted, the following photographs (arranged geographically starting in Albany, NY) were taken by Fred B. Cupp at various times from the late 1950s onward. These photos are intended as reference material on the web for the use of modelers, and many images provide architectural details such as window details, color, or trim of the many and varied D&H stations.
If you have similar photos, you may want to loan your photos to help build this collection. We are open to adding other categories, such as freight houses, telephone shanties, unusual track configurations, unusual railroad equipment, mile markers, and interesting lineside industries. If you have suggestions, feel free to let us know!
If you have photos but cannot find a scanner, contact us and we will try to help out. Most of our members have interesting photos in our collections. Let's share them!
Other New York station photographs can be found at Charles P. Woolever's Railroad Stations in NY State.
The following links to locations and structures listed on this page are arranged in alphabetical order for ease of navigation.
D&H Headquarters Building
The Delaware & Hudson Railway erected and occupied this building as its headquarters in 1915. It is currently the home of the State University of New York's System Administration.
This photo found by Jim Bachorz (photographer unknown). Judging from the clues in the background and the fact that the two big Dutch elm trees are gone from in front of the station, this photo was taken about 1950.
Port Henry, NY
Taken in mid-summer of 1998. The station is now being used as a local Senior Citizen's center and for local meetings. The Canadian Pacific Alco, an ore car, and the Mt. Moriah & Lake Champlain's homemade caboose are the start of a display/museum on the site.
West Port, NY

The station was in very poor shape in 2007 (Mary Sweeney photos). On July 19, 2007, the Friends of the Susquehanna River Rail-Trail announced that the Federal Transportation Enhancement Program awarded them a grant to finance the acquisition of the first leg of the trail. This purchase extended from the village of Windsor south to the Pennsylvania state line, and included the old Windsor Train Station, which the organization intended to preserve. The station was submitted to the registry of historic places.
In 2013, the station was purchased by the Village of Windsor. It is earmarked to be a local history museum known as the "Charles L English Windsor Museum.” The museum intent will be for both railroad memorabilia and local history displays. Much volunteer work was undertaken, building was secured (and dry), windows were restored, and new electric service was installed, as was interior wiring and plumbing.
North Creek, NY
Ft. Edward, NY
Photographed by Roger Smith while on vacation in Poultney, VT in August of 2007. Station and freight house look well-preserved.
