The New York, Westchester & Boston Railway ceased all operation on December 31, 1937. This web site is for historic reference only.
The New York, Westchester & Boston Railway served lower Westchester and the Bronx from 1912-1937. Effective at twelve o’clock midnight, October 31, 1937, all train service to and from the following stations was terminated: Pine Brook, Larchmont, Larchmont Gardens, Mamaroneck, West Street-Harrison, Harrison, Rye, and Port Chester. Effective twelve o’clock midnight, December 31, 1937, all train service on the remainder of the system was terminated.
This termination of service was brought about by the lack of funds necessary to pay taxes, rentals, and other operating costs incident to the continuance of transportation services, and the Trustees were directed by the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York to discontinue all operations. Under the existing legal situation in respect to the property interests concerned, the operation of trains subsequent to December 31, 1937 was impossible.
