It is the old track where President Roosevelt used to get out of Washington D.C. to New York.

See this example in the video below. Attention in 3:07.





The video explains a little about this subject. I am looking for information of this section, photo or anything else.
Thank you

Hah hah hah.

There's so much wrong with this movie its not even funny.

That railcar is actually roughly standard construction of the 1920s. Those "gunports" are standard ventilation systems of the era before AC was invented. The extra-thick windows (which I can't even tell if they ARE) are for protecting the mail. The MNCX designator means that it is assigned to the maintenance department, not the Federal Government.

We know how FDR traveled by rail, and we know that he used a special train car-but that train car is in a museum in Florida. Here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferdin...ellan_(railcar)


Track 61 predates FDR by decades. It was originally intended for mail.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Track_61_(New_York_City)

http://www.columbia.edu/~brennan/abandoned/gct61.html



It IS part of Grand Central Terminal-it just happens to be located in a remote corner of the yards.

Interesting observation.

I do not understand much of the history of Roosevelt, but I believe the track 61 outside of New York should be abandoned. I would like to find pictures of this ancient path from Washington to NY. Excerpts abandoned the old track 61.

For example, these pictures show the track 61 after NY, in Boston, the line was part of Roosevelt snippet:

Roosevelt used the track to journey between Hyde Park, New York and New York City. There was never an "ancient path" between Washington and NY that included Grand Central Terminal.

The term "track 61" in this context refers to a single siding in Grand Central Terminal. It is next to a bunch of other sidings, all of which are in use as necessary.

The picture you are linking to in Boston shows a freight spur that provides access to the port. It has almost no history of passenger service.

The upper photograph has no context and could be literally almost anywhere in North America.

The route that Roosevelt took to Hyde Park was different from time to time as necessary. Those parts of it that are still wanted are still in use (which is just about all of it). There is no one dedicated route that Roosevelt followed, it was a series of lines, such as the West Shore Line, the Northeast Corridor, the Hudson Division, etc. etc. He would go from one line to the next, much like how a Eurostar goes from London to Paris, or London to Brussels-using various different divisions along the route.

Also, Grand Central Terminal is a stub-ended station facing north. There are no tracks facing south there. Any train to Washington would have to take a circuitous route, and possibly use a competing railroad. There has never been any service from GCT to Washington (excepting possibly special runs).

What would that even involve? Going via Harlem Line and then via Maybrook Line east to Danbury, down to Norwalk and then via the Northeast Corridor to DC?
