The Dugway & Washburn's Eddy

  North of The Glen there is an area once referred to as The Dugway.  A man named Elmer Harrington kept watch over this area for the D&H for 47 years, retiring in 1937.  This was an area that was prone to washouts on the track and Mr. Harrington spent enough time there that the D&H built a shanty next to the tracks.  This was just south of the Mill Creek bridge where there was a siding used to load pulp wood.
  Washburn's Eddy is a bend in the Hudson River just south of the Dugway and where Anderson Creek empties into the Hudson. This was the scene of the failed suspension bridge mentioned below.
