Y CKXTHAL'S THIIID RAIL SYSTEM • The electric system of the N. Y Central is to beenlarged. It wus an­ nounced a few yours njjo that the railroad would transform from a steam road into an electric system the Hudson River division as far north as Croton-on-the-Hudson, a distance of 39 9 miles, to North White Plains, a distance of '24- miles and would probably change the l'onkers branch, between lo.\Jth street and Yonkers, into a third railelpctric line. A short time prior this an­ nouncement plans were perfected for enlarging the Grand Central station, so that it would cover many more blocks than the old structure Early last year the electric system as faras Wukeh'eld, on the Harlem division, and High bridge, on the Hudson River division, was completed and permanently openpd The electric plans of the railroad call for a third rail system of four tracks on the Hudson division as far ,-19 Croton and two tracks on thrf Harlem div­ ision as far as North \\ lute Plains In the ne ir future the entire sub­ urban el-vtnc zone will be in opera­ tion between t roton-on tbe-Hudsoti '.

At this junction there is also a branch of the New York, New Haveu and Hartford R. R-, connecting with Danbury and many other Connecticut towns This branch also parallels the Harlem division of the New York Central for several miles north of Brewster and then runs in a northeasterly direc­ tion The Putnam Valley division of the New York Central is to be elec­ trified throughout it's entire length, and thus this branch of the railroad will become one of the longest third rail electric lines traversing an allur­ ing suburban field of New York city. It is the intention of the officials of the New York Central to make the southerly terminal station of the of the Putnam road at 42d street and Fourth avenue, so that persons desiring to travel on the line will not have t o transfer at 155th street to get to the midtown districts of the city. These plans for changing the motor power of the Putnam road from steam to electricity will un­ doubtedly result in the rapid develop­ ment of not only every town along the line but also that flourishing county seat of Putnam County, the village of Brewster. PLANS WILL BENEFIT BREWSTEH. It seems as if Brewster will become a-great residential, business and rail­ road centre being linked in the near future with New York city not only by the Putnam division of the New York Central, but probably by an extension of the electric line of the Harlem division from North White Plains As its name implies, the Putnam Valley is hemmed in from its south­ erly end to its most northerly point by a high range of hills; noted for their pii.'turesqueness and for their many healthful summer resorts.
