View is West
In the distance is Jumpers Perch
Arcadia is a distant left.
This is Hudson Point, the location of the main yard and the
place from which the railroad takes its name. This photograph was taken at the
Eastern most point of the railroad. To the left is the edge of the transfer
bridge where cars are loaded onto floats for the water crossing to
Hawthorne. Also at left, beyond the bulk fuel tank,
is Riverside Inlet and the Marina. The Yard
is where arriving freight trains are separated into "locals,"
outbound cars are made into trains, and most of the maintenance is done on the
equipment. At the far end of this yard are the maintenance
facilities. That area is divided from the rest of the yard by the Zane
Highway overpass. Passengers require more amenities than freight so the Hudson Point and Hawthorne has its "flagship"
passenger station and hotel here at "the Point." The station to the right and out of this picture.
