Most of the postcards were found on EBay unless noted.  Dates are in the picture title, x means the date is approximate.  1901a and 1910b would be the same card, both sides.   Some of them have been cleaned up and/or repaired when I had the energy.  This page is mostly for historical reference, as MANY of these stations are not around anymore!   What's the difference between a station and a depot?  Most people will say "nuttin", it's a matter of preference, although many will use depot for older buildings.  If they were available, and interesting, I included the back side of the postcards.

DEVON/MILFORD -- ex New Haven SS 71 Tower

GPS Coordinates:  41.206451, -73.105832

The tower was in continuous use from 1917 to 1991. It originally had a US&S F style machine, which was then replaced with WABCO NX machine.  The NX machine is now in a museum.  The tower is currently used by the signal department. 

There is a wye, interlocking, and a bridge located here.

A big thanks to Dale Martin for the info and the pictures... he worked at the tower for 20 years!
