Friday January 28, 2011 at 7:00 pm marked the official grand opening of the Westshore Trainstation and it’s two new occupants: the Railroad Playhouse and the Pizza Shop. Many Newburghers can remember when the train station was just a shell, ready to collapse on itself. Friday, the train station was full of life, and full of memories- the first time in over 50 years! Many photos adorn the train station that pay tribute to it’s past as well as the City of Newburgh.
The Railroad Playhouse is already operating in full swing, and the official date that the Pizza Shop will be open is February 3rd. Check back soon, as the story of the restoration of the Westshore Train Station will be appearing in a major publication.
