GOSHEN, N.Y. — Metro-North officials will host an open house in Goshen on Feb. 15 to talk about a series of capital improvements planned for the railroad’s Port Jervis line.

February’s open house will talk about where the rail sidings and yard space could be built. The meeting will be held at the Harness Racing Museum on from 4 to 8 p.m. 240 Main Street in Goshen.

Rail managers say the Port Jervis line is primarily single-track for about 65 miles between Sloatsburg and Port Jervis in New York and limited passing sidings make it difficult for dispatchers to coordinate meets between passenger trains.

In addition, the railroad’s only storage yard is located in Port Jervis, which is about 95 miles from the Hoboken Terminal in New Jersey. Due to the limited sidings and yard space, Metro-North is restricted to the amount of trains it can operate on the line.
