Metro-North

According to Wikipedia:

The Metro-North Commuter Railroad (reporting mark MNCR), is a suburban commuter rail service that is run and managed by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), an authority of New York State. It is the second busiest commuter railroad in the United States as measured in terms of overall monthly ridership, a position it has held since the fourth quarter of 2001. Metro–North runs service between New York City to its northern suburbs in New York and Connecticut.

Metro-North FL9 2041 at Manitou
Metro-North FL9 2041 at Manitou, NY, north of Peekskill, NY with the Bear Mountain Bridge in the Background, June 30, 1995. TO member "swcrossbucks" said, "The first two pictures are northbound trains @ MP 45.5 or so, that have just exited the Fort Montgomery Tunnel and are approaching Manitou Rd. Manitou is still an active passenger station, low level platforms. The southbound Amtrak has just passed Manitou Rd which can be seen in the distance. This shot looks like it was taken a the same location just facing north instead of south. As a note there is now an interlocking that has been installed between the rear of the Amtrak train and the rd crossing. Hope this helps."
