04 – What is the width of the railroad right of way?

Answer

For most of its length, the right of way is 66 feet wide centered on the tracks. Just north of Route 20, the right of way narrows to 50 feet. A title review and survey would determine the precise location of the boundaries of the rail bed. The flat section of the rail bed where the ties and rails are located is a minimum of about 8 feet wide, the length of the ties.
